Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation recently completed a project in Friendship Heights with private sector developers that significantly enhances pedestrian, transit and traffic access in this dense, urban center.
The improvements include reconstructing the median on Wisconsin Avenue between Willard and Western avenues; adding pedestrian and streetscape features; resurfacing pavement; and adding new lane markings to create an additional left turn lane for southbound traffic at Western Avenue.
As a condition of their site plan, New England Development Company reconstructed curbing and installed streetscaping features on the west side of Wisconsin, as called for in the Friendship Heights Sector Plan. The Chevy Chase Land Company did similar work on the east side.
