Description

This project provides repairs and renovations to parking lots at transit park and ride lots AND transit centers to allow them to continue functioning as transit facilities and comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. In FY08/FY09, an evaluation and assessment of all park and ride facilities, including ADA accessibility and pedestrian safety, was completed to provide scope and detailed cost estimates for the restoration and upgrades.

Cost Change

Project reflects cost estimates to implement the repairs identified in the evaluation study. All MARC lots are now renovated by the State and Montgomery Mall park and ride lot is being absorbed by the Mall. These changes allow Transit Services to expedite the schedule and require no additional cost beyond the FY18 program. Figures reflect planning, design, and supervision cost reductions as no projects are scheduled in FY16.

Justification

The County operates 8 transit park and ride lots and 3 transit centers in major transportation corridors. Several County park and ride lots have had major failures, resulting from the age and use of the facilities. Some of the lots were constructed more than 20 years ago. Pavement and the entrances were not constructed to support heavy bus traffic. The plan calls for the following site renovations:
FY15: Damascus Park and Ride and Traville Transit Center
FY16: Colesville Park and Ride, Greencastle Park and Ride
FY17: Burtonsville Park and Ride, Kingsview Park and Ride
FY18: Milestone Park and Ride, Lakeforest Transit Center, Germantown Transit Center

Fiscal Note

Funding for this project is general obligation bonds dedicated to Mass Transit with debt service financed from the Mass Transit Facilities Fund.

Disclosures

A pedestrian impact analysis has been completed for this project.
