Bethesda Bikeway and Pedestrian Facilities

This project provides for bikeway network improvements and pedestrian intersection improvements as recommended in the 2017 Bethesda Downtown Sector Plan.

The planned Capital Crescent Surface Trail (CCST) is a separated two-way bike lane along the northern side of Bethesda Avenue between Woodmont Avenue and Wisconsin Avenue, MD 355. East of Wisconsin Avenue, the two-way separated bike lane will continue along the southern side of Willow Lane to 47th Street. A shared-use path is planned along the Elm Street Park’s 47th Street frontage.

Separated Bikeway & Pedestrian Safety Improvements will also be added along Woodmont Avenue from Norfolk Avenue south to Wisconsin Avenue (MD 355); Montgomery Lane/Avenue between Woodmont Avenue and Pearl Street. Additional bikeway and pedestrian improvements will be added along Norfolk Avenue / Cheltenham Drive between Woodmont Avenue and Tilbury Street as well as Pearl Street between East-West Highway and Sleaford Road.

  • The design for the remaining Capital Crescent Surface Trail (CCST) project is expected to be complete in FY18 and construction in FY19. The design for improvements along Woodmont Avenue, Montgomery Lane / Ave, Pearl Street and Norfolk Ave / Cheltenham Drive will continue in FY19-FY20 with construction anticipated in FY19-FY21
