About the Project

 

Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is planning to design and construct a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line along Veirs Mill Road (MD 586). This is a commuter corridor, with the flow of traffic largely equal in the eastbound and westbound directions between two, large central business districts--Wheaton and Rockville. Smaller commercial districts exist at Randolph Road and just west of Twinbrook Parkway. Residential uses fill in much of the rest of the corridor. Service roads that provide access to residential properties exist along many sections of the roadway, consuming a significant part of the right-of-way.

The Veirs Mill Road corridor experiences some of the highest existing transit volumes in Montgomery County and for that reason has long been considered for bus enhancements. .

In addition to this website, MDOT's website also provides useful information about this project.
