Glenmont Pathways and
Lighting Improvement Project
The Department of Housing and Community Affair’s (DHCA) objectives were to establish a neighborhood “Pedestrian Linkages” program to enhance existing paths or provide new pathways, provide adequate lighting, and sufficient walking surface in a manner to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
Four well-used but deteriorated and poorly lit pedestrian walkway paths have been improved with new streetlights. Three of the paths have been improved with new concrete pavement surfaces. DHCA collaborated with the Department of Transportation (DOT) on the construction of this project. The community has been very pleased with the illumination of the pathways and the pavement improvements that contribute to the health and safety of its residents.
The project included improvements to pedestrian pathways and/or installation of new concrete pavement. There are four path locations identified in the project area. (see map). Improvements were provided to the four pathways (P1, P2, P3, and P4). As a general scope each pathway received improvements as follows:
P1 – Provided new concrete path pavement for pathway, seeding or sod and pedestrian lights, Approximately 300 LF
P2 – Removed existing concrete pathway; provided new concrete pathway, seeding or sod and pedestrian lights, Approximately 400 LF
P3 – Removed existing bituminous concrete pathway; provided new concrete pathway, seeding or sod and pedestrian lights, Approximately 150 LF
P4 – Provided pedestrian lights along existing pathway, existing pathway length is approximately 266 LF
