MD 210 signDecember 8 Meeting will Present Results, Recommendations and Next Steps (November 28, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA), in collaboration with Prince George’s County, will host a virtual public meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, December 8, to present study results, recommendations and next steps for the ongoing MD 210 Pedestrian and Bicycle Study. The study area includes the MD 210 corridor between 1-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway) and Old Fort Road in the Fort Washington and Oxon Hill communities. The purpose of the study is to develop a comprehensive roadmap for future roadway projects and determine how to best implement pedestrian and bicyclist facilities while addressing motorists’ needs along the corridor. Recommendations from this study may become part of larger roadway improvements as well as stand-alone projects based on needs and funding. “MDOT SHA is committed to providing our customers safe and reliable multi-modal transportation options,” said MDOT SHA Administrator Tim Smith. “As we move into preliminary design, the study is a tool that will help us coordinate vulnerable users’ travel needs with the needs of motorists in this growing area of Prince George’s County.” With the completion of this planning study, MDOT SHA will begin next steps toward constructing shared-use paths and upgrading existing facilities. The preliminary design for Phase 1 is anticipated to be reached by summer 2024.
