Description

This project provides for the County contribution to the design, partial land acquisition, and construction of the 2,400-foot long section of Snowden Farm Parkway from 300 feet north of Morning Star Drive to Ridge Road (MD 27); the 3,400-foot section of Little Seneca Parkway from Snowden Farm Parkway to Frederick Road (MD 355); and the intersection of Brink Road at MD 355. Both Parkways will include: fourlane divided roadways, an eight-foot bikeway along the north/west sides, and a five-foot sidewalk along the south/east sides within 120 foot right-of-ways. The Brink Road intersection will include improvements to the intersection as required by the Montgomery County Planning Board's opinion in the approval of the Clarksburg Village and Greenway Village Subdivisions. The project will also include street lighting, stormwater management, landscaping and reforestation. Appropriate auxiliary lanes and traffic signals will also be provided.

Location

Clarksburg, MD

Cost Change

Cost decrease due to the approval of impact tax credits requested by the developers for segments of roads included in the road participation agreement.

Justification 

These roads will provide congestion relief to the Clarksburg area by providing direct tie-ins to MD 355 and MD 27 and improved access to I- 270.

Other

This project will be constructed by the developers. The County's contribution will allow these roadways to be built along with the other portions of the roadways to provide completed connections to State roadways.

Fiscal Note

A Memorandum of Agreement will be created among the County and Developer(s) outlining the shared fiscal responsibility for the design, right-of-way acquisition, construction and maintenance of this project. The County will assume ownership and maintenance of the roadways. The adjacent developers will dedicate their properties to the County for the roadways and other private properties will be acquired through the County's land acquisition process.
