Montgomery County is proposing a series of improvements along Goldsboro Road to make it more friendly to bicycles and pedestrians.
The county next month is holding a public hearing to present plans that call for dedicated bike lanes and a shared-use path along a one-mile segment of the road between MacArthur Boulevard and River Road.
The project would include:
- Two 11-foot travel lanes for the mile-long segment
- A dedicated, five-foot-wide bike lane in each direction.
- At the intersection of Goldsboro Road and MacArthur Boulevard, a four-foot bikeable shoulder and eight-foot wide shared use path along the east side of the circle.
- Replacement of the existing pedestrian bridge over Minnehaha Branch, on the south side of Goldsboro Road near Wedgewood Road.
- The public has the chance to weigh in on the project through March 23 by emailing John.Thomas@montgomerycountymd.gov.
Here are the details of the public hearing:
When: March 8, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: Walt Whitman High School Cafeteria, 7100 Whittier Boulevard, Bethesda.
