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.
Many of the County’s suggestions were included in MDSHA’s 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 completed streetscape improvements in 2012 as part of the Fenton Village Pedestrian Linkages project, constructed south of Wayne Avenue.
