Forest Glen Road Sidewalk

The Forest Glen Road Sidewalk project provides the preliminary (35%) design of a six feet wide concrete sidewalk with a grass buffer over approximately 2,400 feet along the north side of Forest Glen Road from Woodland Drive to Sligo Creek Trail in Silver Spring. The sidewalk is proposed from the back of the existing curb toward the road that a retaining wall is not needed. This project closes the missing link in the existing sidewalk that will provide safe pedestrian access to Forest Glen Metro Station, Forest Glen Medical Center, Holy Cross Hospital, Sligo Creek Stream Valley Park, and Sligo Creek Trail.
