Highlighted Projects

The Transportation Planning Board (TPB) of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG), the Metropolitan's Planning Organization (MPO) for Prince George's County and the Greater Washington Region, recently awarded the Prince George's County Department of Public Works & Transportation (DPW&T) two grants to conduct public outreach and planning for pedestrian and bicycle access at two upcoming Purple Line Stations.  The grants are administered by MWCOG so staff can focus on designing the pedestrian and bicycle access enhancements with the aid of design consultants that can provide technical assistance for identified projects.  https://www.mwcog.org/newsroom/2020/04/21/the-tpb-approved-15-projects-to-help-create-more-livable-communities/

The two projects are the Cool Spring and Adelphi Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Improvement Project and the Riggs Road Neighborhood Bicycle Boulevards Project.  

A public meeting for the Cool Spring Rd., Adelphi Rd. Pedestrian-Bike Access Project was held in January and a second public meeting will be held in June 2021.  A link to the first presentation is found here: https://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/DocumentCenter/View/34011/Cool-Spring-Rd-Adelphi-Rd-Public-Meeting-Slides?bidId=
