New Safety Project on Randolph Road Designed to Improve Pedestrian Safety

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Engineering and Operations, installed a median fence along Randolph Road, between Veirs Mill Road and Colie Drive, to improve pedestrian safety. This section of Randolph Road is located in an area of the County targeted for pedestrian improvements because it experiences a higher number of collisions. 
 
The fence provides a barrier that discourages people from crossing the road in the middle of the block, encouraging them instead to cross at intersections with traffic signals. A similar median barrier was installed late last year on Randolph Road, west of Veirs Mill Road near Selfridge Road.
 
Installation of the new fence was coordinated with the Division of Highway Services’ Tree Maintenance Section. Staff removed several trees from the median that were in poor health and replaced them with a dozen new trees.
