The project provides for the design and construction of bicycle and pedestrian capital improvements in the 28 Bicycle-Pedestrian Priority Areas (BPPAs) identified in County master plans. Examples of such improvements include, but are not limited to: sidewalk, curb, and curb ramp reconstruction to meet ADA best practices, bulb-outs, cycle tracks, streetlighting, and relocation of utility poles.

Estimated Schedule 

A study in FY15 will identify sub-projects in the following BPPAs: Glenmont, Grosvenor, Silver Spring Central Business District, Veirs Mill/Randolph Road, and Wheaton Central Business District. Design and construction of sub-projects will begin in FY16.


This project will enhance the efforts in other projects to improve pedestrian and bicycle mobility in those areas where walking and biking are most prevalent. These efforts will also help meet master plan non-auto-driver mode share (NADMS) goals.


A pedestrian impact analysis will be performed during design or is in progress.
