MCDOT Awarded Grant to Fund New Trail in Clarksburg

July 28, 2015

 Montgomery County Department of Transportation has won approval by the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board for a grant to design and engineer a shared used path in Clarksburg.

   The $534,416 grant will be used to design and engineer a bike path which will run on the eastern side of Maryland Route 355 (Frederick Road) in Clarksburg from Stringtown Road north to where Snowden Farm Parkway leads into MD 355.

   The path will create a link in the existing trail network along Frederick Road between Little Bennett Regional Park Trail and the planned Frederick Road Bike Path, which will run from Stringtown Road to Milestone Manor Lane in Germantown. Montgomery County will contribute about $131,000 to the project if approved by the County Council.

   The grant comes from the Maryland Transportation Alternatives Program, which provides federal funds for projects considered as alternatives to traditional highway construction. The program combines three former federal programs: Transportation Enhancements, Safe Routes to Schools and Recreational Trails. The Maryland program is facilitated by the Maryland State Highway Administration, and final funding recommendations are subject to review and approval by the State Secretary of Transportation.

   The Frederick Road Bike Path will be a 10-foot wide hiker-biker path along the west side of Frederick Road. It is slated for construction to start in FY2016 and should be completed by FY2017.
