Flower Avenue Separated Bike Lanes

The Flower Avenue Separated Bike Lanes Project will not only add a low-stress bikeway along Flower Avenue between Arliss Street and Piney Branch Road (MD 320) but also will improve traffic and pedestrian safety. This facility will help to provide connections for cyclists to the future Purple Line station at Arliss Street.

In May 2023, MCDOT held a community meeting to gather feedback about the design of the project and to present alternatives. Out of three alternatives presented, Alternative A was selected as the preferred alternative. As of Dec. 2023, the project has reached the 35% design milestone.

MCDOT presented the current design for community feedback at a public information meeting on February 7, 2024. Please visit the “Project Documents” tab of this website to view the meetings slides and recording.

Project Schedule

Following the May 2023 public information meeting on the Flower Avenue Separated Bike Lanes project, Alternative A was selected from three potential concepts as the preferred design option to be advanced to the 35% design milestone. On February 7, 2024, 35% design was presented to the community at a hybrid public information meeting. Visit the “Project Documents” tab of this website to view the meeting video and presentation slides. Comments can be left via the online comment form located on the "Participate" tab of this website.  The deadline to submit comments is March 6, 2024.

Funding for the Flower Avenue Separated Bike Lanes project has been secured to advance the project to final design. We anticipate that the final design will be reached in 2024. No construction timeline is available yet.

A Joint Hybrid Public Meeting for the Flower Avenue Bikeway project and Piney Branch Road Bikeway project was held on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 6:30 p.m., to present the project scope, schedule and costs as well as obtain community input and answer questions.
