New Silver Spring Residents Invited to Learn about Major Transportation Projects Planned for their Community

Those new to Silver Spring are invited to attend the next meeting of the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board to learn more about future projects that may expand their transit options including the Purple Line Light Rail system and a Bus Rapid Transit system for US 29 and New Hampshire Avenue. The meeting will be held on Monday, November 9, at the Silver Spring Civic Building. The transportation discussion is scheduled to begin at 7:10 p.m.

Speakers will include MCDOT Rapid Transit System Development Manager Joana Conklin, Maryland Transit Administration Community Outreach Coordinator Mike Madden, Tamika Gauvin with the Maryland Transit Administration, and Transportation Task Force Report Chair Mark Winston.
This is an opportunity for community members who may not be as familiar with these projects, are new to the area, or want to remain informed, to receive an update. The discussion will provide a context for these projects; explain how they relate to each other and other transportation projects, programs, and initiatives; and review how the systems’ will work.
