Vision Zero: City Meets to Talk Complete Streets and Sidewalks

Rockville’s Vision Zero Action Plan is walking (and rolling) on with a new Complete Streets project and meetings about roadway improvements to improve safety for all.

In April, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Transportation Land-Use Connections Program awarded Rockville $80,000 for a Complete Streets feasibility study of Congressional Lane. The Complete Streets approach can reduce speeding vehicles by identifying potential improvements to help people drive, walk, roll, bike and use transit more safely.

The study will examine the full length of Congressional Lane, from Rollins Avenue to Rockville Pike (MD 355), assessing roadway conditions and evaluating the impact of potential improvements on multiple modes of transportation. It will also include opportunities for the public to submit comments about proposed improvements. A consultant is expected to be chosen this summer with the project expected to begin in fall.

Sidewalk and grass

Rockville will also host meetings to discuss proposed sidewalk and intersection improvements throughout the city. Visit for meeting details, including how to join the Monday, July 1 virtual meeting. Walk-and-roll-the-block meetings are scheduled for the following sidewalk feasibility studies:

  • Crawford Drive (Rockcrest Circle to Hillcrest Park) at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 21.

Meetings to discuss findings of the Twinbrook Safe Routes to School and Transit Access Study are scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 26 at Twinbrook Community Recreation Center, 12920 Twinbrook Parkway, and virtually at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 1.

The study evaluated the intersections of Ardennes Avenue at Crawford Drive, Halsey Road, Halpine Road, Ridgway Avenue and Wainwright Avenue; Chapman Avenue at Bouic Avenue and at Twinbrook Parkway; and Lemay Road at Ridgway Avenue.
