Spring St. Cedar St. Separated Bike Lanes

The Spring Street/Cedar Street Separated Bike Lanes project will construct separated bike lanes along Spring and Cedar Streets in downtown Silver Spring. The new bikeway will run along Spring Street from Second Avenue in the west to Ellsworth Drive and will continue along Cedar Street to Wayne Avenue.

A separated bike lane is a bike lane that is separated from moving vehicles with a barrier of some sort. Along Spring and Cedar, we’ll use a painted buffer with flexpost delineators to keep cars from intruding into the bikeway. On most blocks, in addition to these barriers, parked cars will provide a buffer from moving vehicles.

The Spring/Cedar separated bike lanes will have a pair of one-way separated bike lanes, where each bike lane is on the same side of the street as traffic going in the same direction. This is the same design as the separated bike lanes recently constructed on Nebel Street in White Flint.

Work on the Spring Street / Cedar Street Separated Bike Lanes began in late April with utility relocation. Site preparation work started on May 11.

Concrete work for the project was completed at the end of June. This work included constructing new floating bus stop platforms, median modifications, corner islands, and pedestrian safety refuges. For more information, please see the June and July project updates.

Milling and resurfacing work is expected to start on or about July 31. This work will result in a new smooth road surface. To avoid major traffic and parking impacts, this work must take place at night. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your patience.

Striping the roadway and installation of flexpost delineators and signs will occur in early to mid-August, weather-permitting
