MD 185 Corridor Needs Analysis

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) Office of Planning and Preliminary Engineering (OPPE), in consulta​tion with MDOT SHA District 3, completed a comprehensive needs analysis for MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) between Chevy Chase Circle/Western Avenue at the state boundary with Washington DC, and MD 193 (University Boulevard) in the Town of Kensington.

This document outlines a long-term vision for the corridor by identifying strategies to address pedestrian and bicycle network needs, enhance multimodal safety and improve travel conditions along the corridor.

This needs analysis provides a road-map to deliver improvements based on MDOT SHA’s Context Driven - Access & Mobility for All User's Guide, a planning and design resource centered on establishing safe and effective multi-modal transportation systems. Context Driven weighs the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers in the context of the surrounding environment and targets strategies that overcome deficiencies and improve safety and mobility.
