Georgia Avenue PRSA

In March 2009, MCDOT conducted a Pedestrian Road Safety Audit (PRSA) along Georgia Avenue between Spring Street and Sligo Avenue in Silver Spring. This stretch of Georgia Avenue was identified as one of Montgomery County’s High Incidence Areas for pedestrian collisions, based on data from five consecutive years. This audit is the basis for many of the intersection improvements and sidewalk upgrades planned or underway on Georgia Avenue, as part of Maryland State Highway Administration (MDSHA) and Montgomery County Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA) projects.

Many of the County’s suggestions were included in MDSHA’s current US 29 Traffic Signal Upgrade/Reconstruction project which included traffic signals at six Georgia Avenue intersections, and was completed in 2012. The Department of Housing and Community Affairs has begun streetscape improvements in 2012 as part of the Fenton Village Pedestrian Linkages project, being constructed south of Wayne Avenue.
