Carroll Avenue Separated Bike Lanes

The Carroll Avenue Separated Bike Lanes Project will add a low-stress bikeway to Carroll Avenue between Merrimac Drive and Piney Branch Road (MD 320) in the Takoma/Langley Crossroads area. This facility will help to provide connections for cyclists to the future Purple Line station at Takoma/Langley Transit Center. The exact facility type has not yet been determined.

As of Spring 2023, the project is in the beginning stages of design, and MCDOT is working to advance the design to 30%. Several potential concepts have been identified and will be presented at a community meeting in March 2023.

MCDOT will hold an in-person community meeting
When: Tuesday, March 7, 2023
Time: 7:00 p.m. To 9:00 p.m.
Where: New Hampshire Estates Elementary School
Address: 8720 Carroll Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20903

The Carroll Avenue Separated Bike Lanes project is currently funded through 30% design. We expect to complete this process in late 2023.

Initial preliminary alternatives will be presented to the community in March 2023. The selected alternative will be advanced to 30% design, and we expect to present that design to the community in late 2023 or early 2024.

Once the 30% concept design is complete, we will pursue final design as funding is available. No construction timeline is available yet.
