Second Ave/Wayne Ave Separated Bike Lanes

The Second Avenue / Wayne Avenue Separated Bike Lanes project will construct separated bike lanes along Second Avenue and Wayne Avenue in downtown Silver Spring. The new bikeway will run along Second Avenue from Spring Street to Colesville Road (MD 384) and along Wayne Avenue from Colesville Road to Georgia Avenue (US 29).

A separated bike lane is a bike lane that is separated from moving vehicles with a barrier of some sort. Along Second and Wayne, we’ll use a painted buffer with flexpost delineators to keep cars from intruding on the bikeway.

The separated bike lanes along Second Avenue will be one-way separated bike lanes on either side of the street, like along Nebel Street in White Flint, pictured on the left above. Along Wayne Avenue, the facility will be a two-way separated bike lane (also known as a cycle track) on the north side of the street. The Woodglen Drive cycle track in White Flint, pictured above on the right, is an example of a two-way facility.

A transition between the two facilities will be located at the intersection of Second Avenue and Colesville Road.

MCDOT is also designing a protected intersection for the intersection of Second Avenue and Spring Street. A protected intersection is an intersection designed to provide a safer crossing for cyclists and pedestrians by improving sight-lines and slowing the speed at which vehicles turn.

A public meeting was held on December 6, 2016 to discuss the project with the community. To see the presentation and other materials from the meeting, please visit the Project Documents tab. Please submit any comments about the design of the project no later than December 21, 2016 to the Project Manager, using the contact information shown on the Contact Us tab.
