Click for a larger view

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is conducting a study to improve movement between the east and west sides of Rockville Pike at South Wood Road and South Drive.


MCDOT conducted a public open house on July 20, 2010 during which it presented three project alternatives. See the display boards from the meeting.

On September 16, 2010, staff briefed the Planning Board on the status of the project. Read the staff summary (pdf, 3MB) on the crossing alternatives

In late September, MCDOT released a report, Alternatives Retained for Detailed Study (pdf, 20MB), describing the preliminary alternatives developed for this study and summarizing the screening and evaluation of each alternative and its potential to meet the project purpose and need. It also recommends several alternatives to be dropped from further consideration and identifies the Alternatives Retained for Detailed Study (ARDS). This presentation (8.5 MB) provides the results of additional analyses of the alternatives retained for detailed study.

On December 6, MCDOT briefed the Planning Board on the status of the project. Read the staff summary. The Board endorsed the selection of Alternative 2B as the Locally Preferred Alternative for the MD 355/Rockville Pike Crossing Study and transmitted comments (pdf, 51KB) to the Montgomery County Department of Transportation.
