In fall 2010, a pedestrian road safety audit (PRSA) was conducted on Randolph Road in the Wheaton-Glenmont area of Montgomery County. This audit was the second conducted on a County-maintained roadway. Although this segment of Randolph Road between Selfridge Road and Colie Drive is primarily a County facility, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) was part of a multi-jurisdictional team, including the Maryland State Highway Administration (MDSHA) and Arlington County (Virginia) Department of Transportation.
Since the completion of the audit, MCDOT’s PRSA program joined with its Sidewalk program to complete the installation of wider sidewalks along Randolph Road west of Veirs Mill Road and Selfridge Road. This effort included other measures, such as curb-side improvements, to help maintain the “usable” sidewalk width, which is commonly susceptible to encroachment by foliage and debris.
MCDOT has also recently implemented median treatments (i.e., ornamental fencing) on Randolph Road between Selfridge Road and Colie Drive to help eliminate the prevalence of random mid-block crossings along this segment where there is significant “through” traffic volume and drivers may not expect encounter pedestrians.
