The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Division of Transportation Engineering will host a workshop to solicit community comment on the Midcounty Corridor Study on Wednesday, June 6. The meeting will take place, from 4 to 9 p.m. in the Watkins Mill High School cafeteria, 10301 Apple Ridge Rd., Gaithersburg.
The Midcounty Corridor Study is looking at ways to improve north-south transportation options in the Clarksburg, Germantown and Gaithersburg areas to serve the planned land use and future growth.
Attendees at the workshop will be able to review concepts at their own pace and provide feedback. MCDOT staff and other agency representatives will be available to discuss the project, answer questions and address concerns. No formal presentation will be made.
Planning for the Midcounty Corridor Study (MCS) began in 2006 with 11 preliminary alternatives. The MCS is now at a critical milestone where the 11 alternatives have been reduced to six, based on the results of preliminary studies, agency input, stakeholder recommendations and public comments. More information about the study is available on the County’s website
