Aspen Hill Neighborhood Greenway Pilot

The Aspen Hill Neighborhood Greenway Pilot Project will explore opportunities to connect the Glenmont Metro Station to the Aspen Hill Shopping Center and North Gate Shopping Center via a parallel route to Georgia Avenue. This project will also examine the feasibility and impacts of creating trail connections between the Matthew Henson Trail and neighboring communities as well as through Harmony Hills Neighborhood Park.

Neighborhood Greenways are streets with low motorized traffic volumes and speeds, designed and designated to give walking and bicycling priority. They use signs, pavement markings, and speed and volume management measures to discourage through trips by motor vehicles and create safe, convenient crossings of busy streets. Design elements can include traffic diverters at key intersections, traffic circles or mini-roundabouts, traffic calming, shared lane markings, crossing improvements, and wayfinding signage to guide bicyclists along the route and to key destinations among other things.
