SHA to Upgrade Six Traffic Signals on Georgia Avenue

Starting in February, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will begin a $1 million traffic signal upgrade on Georgia Avenue between East West Highway and Wayne Avenue in Silver Spring. The project is expected to be completed in summer 2011.
SHA will upgrade the existing signals to include accessible/countdown pedestrian signal, upgrade existing sidewalk ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act standards, paint signal poles and upgrade lighting to provide improved visibility of pedestrian crosswalks. 
SHA is also enhancing the intersections of US 29 with the following roads:
  • MD 410/Burlington Avenue/13th Street
  • Sligo Avenue
  • Silver Spring Avenue
  • Thayer Avenue
  • Bonifant Avenue
  • Wayne Avenue
