The Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s Division of Transportation Engineering has begun an extension to Nebel Street in Rockville, from Randolph Road north to the existing segment behind Target. The current street -- that runs from the intersection of Bou Avenue and Chapman Avenue -- was previously built by a developer. Improving the road network in this area is an important component of the Master Plan to help reduce congestion on Rockville Pike and provide improved access for motorists, bikers, and pedestrians.
The new road segment will be four lanes wide, with a sidewalk, an asphalt bike path, streetlights, and landscape trees. Improvements will be made to the intersection of Nebel and Randolph, and modifications made to the signal at Bou and Chapman. In addition to connecting residents with retail stores in the area, the newly extended road will serve the White Flint and Twinbrook Metro stations and a proposed MARC station at Montrose Crossing.
The $14 million project is expected to be completed by the end of 2011.
