Vision Zero Project Public Meetings Continue in April

Community members can learn about ongoing transportation safety improvement projects across Rockville as the city hosts public meetings this month. 

The projects are part of the city’s Vision Zero Action Plan to eliminate traffic-related deaths and serious injuries. Visit the city’s online calendar, at www.rockvillemd.gov/calendar, for details on how to join the virtual public meetings described below, where city residents, visitors and interested stakeholders can learn, ask questions and submit comments about the projects. 

A virtual meeting from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 will present findings from a Complete Streets feasibility study for Mannakee Street that was funded by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Transportation Land-Use Connections Program. The Complete Streets approach can reduce speeding vehicles by identifying potential improvements for motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users. 

The city’s ongoing effort to develop new guidelines for pedestrian crosswalks and other pedestrian improvements — another COG-funded project, through the Regional Roadway Safety Program — will be the focus of a virtual meeting from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 16. 

Other public meetings later this spring, at dates and times to be determined, will include a discussion of the Beall Avenue Complete Streets and asphalt art project and walk-and-roll-the-block meetings for each segment in the second group of sidewalk feasibility studies. For more information about these and other Vision Zero-related projects, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/visionzeroprojects
