Woodmont Avenue Pedestrian Safety Audit Conducted

Last week, MCDOT completed a pedestrian safety audit of Woodmont Avenue between Old Georgetown Road and Battery Lane. The audit was done over two days during morning hours, at mid-day and evening. The audit group walked Woodmont Avenue to assess conditions that could affect pedestrian safety, such as crosswalks, sidewalks and obstacles that prevent drivers from seeing pedestrians clearly. The next step will be preparation of a report detailing audit findings and recommendations about ways to improve safety.

More information about other pedestrian safety audits is available on the County’s website.
