New Hampshire Avenue 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) 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 will culminate in an HIN Safety Study will identify corridor safety needs and, once prospective improvements are identified, will be followed by engineering design and the subsequent construction of identified safety improvements.  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.
