US 29 South Corridor Advisory Committee

(South of New Hampshire Ave)

The US 29 BRT Corridor Study extends from the Burtonsville Park & Ride lot south to the Silver Spring Transit Center, a distance of about 12 miles. For the BRT study purposes, the corridor was divided into two sections: the segment north of New Hampshire Avenue (the focus of the US 29 North CAC) characterized by more high speed traffic, and the segment south of New Hampshire Avenue (the focus of the US 29 South CAC) characterized by more local and commuter traffic.

Most of the traffic along the whole corridor flows southbound in the morning and northbound in the evening. Much of this traffic is long distance trips, passing through the corridor on the way to other places. For many people it is an alternative to I-95, drawing people from northern Montgomery County and Howard County to jobs in the I-270 corridor, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia.

The US 29 South section serves the more densely developed urban areas of Four Corners, the Silver Spring Central Business District, and surrounding communities. Due to its more established nature, this segment is characterized by numerous property access points, constrained rights-of-way, and sensitive community resources.

For more information see the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan.
