This project provides for Facility Planning of Observation Drive from Water Discovery Lane (existing road) in Germantown to approximately one fourth mile south of Stringtown Road in Clarksburg.  It will provide the missing segments from Germantown to Clarksburg and will be built by developers.  The 1994 Clarksburg Master Plan recommends that Observation Drive (A-19) be a four-lane divided arterial roadway with a minimum 150-foot right-of-way and the incorporation of a transitway. Observation Drive will provide multi-modal access to planned developments and preserve the right-of-way for a proposed transitway.
