Bradley Boulevard (MD 191) Improvements

This project provides for the master planned dual bikeway along Bradley Boulevard (MD191) which includes two 11’ traffic lanes, two on-road bike lanes, an off-road side path on the east side of the road, and a 5’ sidewalk on the west side of the road. The project limits are from approximately McLean Drive to Glenbrook Road. The project will coordinate with a separate MCDOT intersection improvement project to connect the existing sidewalk on Wilson Lane to the existing sidewalk east of Glenbrook Road to improve pedestrian safety and provide access to transit stops and the Bethesda CBD. The project includes two additional un-signalized crosswalks across Bradley Boulevard at Durbin Road and Pembroke Road, drainage improvements, and pedestrian lighting. This project also includes stormwater management, minor land acquisitions and utility relocations that support the improvements.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2025 and be completed by 2027.

Background

The project was initiated by a request of the South Bradley Hills in 2003 with a petition for a sidewalk on the north side. The Department received requests by the bike advocacy groups for bike facilities.

County Master Plan

The 1990 Approved and Adopted Bethesda-Chevy Chase MP recommends a shared use path along Bradley Blvd https://montgomeryplanning.org/planning/communities/downcounty/bethesda-chevy-chase/

The 2005 Countywide Bikeways Functional Master Plan recommends pedestrian connections and a dual bikeway along Boulevard from Wisconsin Avenue to Persimmon Tree Road (7 miles). Much of the roadway between Goldsboro to Persimmon Tree Road has some type of on-road bicycle facilities be it a shoulder or wide outside lanes.

Dual Bikeway features both Class I off road Shared Use Path and on road facility.
