New Hampshire Avenue Grant-Funded Mutli-Jurisdictional Safety Study

Project Description and Background

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) and Prince George’s County Department of Public Works (PCDPW) performed an evaluation between January 2022 and June 2022 to identify safety needs along MD 650 (New Hampshire Avenue) between I-495 (Capital Beltway) and MD 320 (Piney Branch Road).  This section of MD 650 was designated as a High Injury Network (HIN) corridor in the County Executive’s Vision Zero Plan.  This HIN designation means that there are a significant number of serious injury and fatal crashes along the corridor.  The evaluation, which culminated in an HIN Corridor Safety Study, identifed corridor safety needs, recommended improvements, and agency responsibility for pursuing those improvments.  As part of the HIN Safety Study development, MCDOT and PGDPWT reached out to residents who live along the study corridor and invited them to share feedback related to perceived safety needs in the corridor.
