Jones Bridge Road Traffic Calming Project Completed

The Division of Traffic Engineering and Operations (DTEO) recently completed traffic calming and pedestrian safety improvements on Jones Bridge Road between Connecticut Avenue (MD 185) and Jones Mill Road. DTEO installed new concrete median islands, marked crosswalks, ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps, permanent traffic signs and pavement markings. Crews also patched the roadway where needed. 
 
Traffic calming efforts like this have reduced speeding on arterial and primary residential roads by as much as 11 miles per hour. Speed is directly linked to collisions and injury severity, so slowing traffic to the posted speed limits can both reduce collisions and significantly reduce the severity of injuries for those who are struck.
