Make Montgomery Hills Safer, Smarter

The stretch of Georgia Ave that runs from 16th Street to the Beltway is one of the busiest segments in the entire state.  And one of the most unsafe in Maryland.  Rear-end, sideswipe, left-turn, angle, pedestrian, and truck-related crashes occur at a rate significantly higher than statewide average for those crash types on similar roads.  In a nutshell, it isn’t a very safe place to drive.  But it isn’t a safe place to walk or bike either, and even if one could walk safely, there aren’t many places that you would want to walk to.  But Maryland SHA has a plan to make Montgomery Hills safer and smarter.

You can read more about SHA’s plan to transform Georgia Ave into a corridor to walk, bike, and drive safely. But we need SHA to fund their plan. Support SHA funding for the MD 97 Plan.  Together we can #FixMontgomeryHills.

Make Montgomery Hills Smarter Safer.

County’s Transportation Committee recommends Forest Glen’s 2nd entrance!

The County Council’s Transportation Committee voted 2-1 (Berliner, Hucker -YES, Floreen – NO) to approve funding for the Forest Glen 2nd entrance with the bulk of the $20 million being available FY21 and construction completed in FY25.

Let the County know today that you support this recommendation ahead of the March 20th vote!

Check out below the discussion on the 2nd entrance and the vote on the proposal.

We need your SUPPORT!

The County Council is deciding on whether to fund the Forest Glen 2nd metro entrance on the East side and we need to have our voices heard.

Please EMAIL the Council and let them know that you want better pedestrian safety and kill the wasteful Montrose Parkway East (you can read more about that here).

We are getting close but we need your support!

A very special shout-out to our community members that came out and supported this very important endeavor (pics below!).
