Emory Lane & Muncaster Mill Road (MD 115)
Shared Use Path

 

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is investing in a well connected pedestrian and bicycle network which enriches the livability of a community. Therefore, MCDOT is implementing bi-cycle facilities such as off road shared use paths, which serve as critical links in the transportation system, providing access to residential areas, transit, commercial districts, schools, places of worship, parks, and recreation areas.

MCDOT has initiated preliminary design for the Emory Lane and Muncaster Mill Road (MD 115) Shared Use Path Project from Holly Ridge Road to Muncaster Mill Road at the proposed North Branch Trail in order to provide safer bicycle and pedestrian access between the ICC bike path along Georgia Avenue and the proposed North Branch Trail/Rock Creek Regional Park.

  • Work has been progressing on the Emory Lane and Muncaster Mill Road Shared Use Path Project. The Contractor is limited to working in sections as a result of the DPS permit. This is to ensure proper erosion and sediment control. The construction of the box culvert has been completed.
  • Currently, grading and stabilization for the bike path is underway from the section between Holly Ridge Road to about the third or fourth house midway along Emory Lane and work continues on the next section of the bike path towards the culvert.
  • Our Contractor is also coordinating the work at the intersection with the State to get the intersection reopened. A new traffic signal will be installed at Emory Lane and Muncaster Mill Road.
  • MCDOT anticipates reopening Emory Lane on or about early July 2022. The remaining work will be under flagger operations until completed in late Summer/early Fall of 2022.
