Pedestrian Safety Audit Planned for Lockwood Drive

On October 29, Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will meet with residents and other stakeholders to review information and get input prior to conducting a Pedestrian Road Safety Audit on Lockwood Drive. Road safety audits are a formal, data-driven process used by MCDOT to identify safety issues and potential improvements in a specific roadway corridor.  Field reviews over several days will provide information on how MCDOT can make the roadway safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The meeting will be held at the third District Police Station, 1002 Milestone Drive, Silver Spring, at 6 p.m. At the meeting, roadway users and agency representatives will review pedestrian crash data in the area and provide input to the field review process. Once the audit is completed, MCDOT will develop recommendations to improve the roadway’s safety for pedestrians and bicyclists.
