Montgomery County has received a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to design hiker-biker trails and bike lanes in the vicinity of the National Naval Medical Center and the National Institutes of Health. The grant provides for the design of bike facilities on:
- Cedar Lane for an off-road bike path between Old Georgetown Road and an existing path beyond Rockville Pike that connects to Beach Drive;
- Battery Lane and Glenbrook Parkway for sidewalk repairs, lighting, and improved signage;
- Rockville Pike for a hiker-biker path to replace the existing sidewalk on the east side between Cedar Lane and Jones Bridge Road; and
- Jones Bridge Road to add either bike lanes or an off-road bike path between Rockville Pike and the entrance to the Uniformed Services University of the Health Services.
