• Bicycle Master Plan Meetings

    Wednesday, May 24, 2017

    From the Planning Department:

    "Public meetings are planned for June 2017 to provide the public the opportunity to comment on preliminary bikeway recommendations for Montgomery County's Bicycle Master Plan. The meetings will be held in five different locations so that county residents can pick the one that is most convenient for them to attend. Each event will consist of an open house and informal discussion from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. when attendees can meet with Planning Department staff to discuss cycling issues and concerns. The discussion will be followed by a presentation about the master plan and a question-and-answer session, from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m.

    Since launching the Bicycle Master Plan in July 2015, planners have considered the newest types of bikeways, such as separated and buffered bike lanes and bicycle boulevards, as well as secure bicycle storage facilities at transit stations. Proposed recommendations for the cycling network are based on an evaluation of the varying levels of stress imposed by traffic on cyclists along each roadway in Montgomery County.
