 Public Meeting June 18: MD355 Multimodal Crossing Project


MCDOT will hold a public meeting on the MD 355 Multimodal Crossing Project, which will be situated at the Medical Center Metro Station. The Public Meeting will take place on June 18, 2013, at 7:30 pm, and be held at the BCC Regional Services Center, 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda MD 20814.

The MD 355 Crossing Project is a design-build project, fully funded by the federal government at over $68 million, which will construct new entrances to the Metro Station and provide safe and efficient crossing of Rockville Pike for pedestrians and cyclists. The project will include a bank of deep elevators on the Walter Reed side of Rockville Pike directly to the Metrorail platform, and a shallow pedestrian tunnel connecting Walter Reed to NIH and the bus and carpool transit center on the west side of Rockville Pike. The project will include roadway and pedestrian improvements at the intersection of Rockville Pike and Jones Bridge Road.
