County Executive’s Proposed Capital Budget Includes Funds to Improve Alternatives to Interim Georgetown Branch Trail

County Executive Isiah Leggett’s proposed capital budget includes about $3 million for construction of protected bike lanes and other bicycle infrastructure improvements in Bethesda. The funds will be used to further enhance alternative routes until the Interim Georgetown Branch Trail (which is now closed) is rebuilt as part of the Purple Line project. The Trail is an extension of the Capital Crescent Trail.

To ensure resident safety, Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation has made numerous improvements to the current interim trail by adding signs to better guide users to the designated route and refreshing pavement markings.
