MCDOT Installs Traffic Calming Project on Brunett Avenue to Improve Pedestrian Safety

Residents concerned about speeding traffic on Brunett Avenue between Guilford Street and Bruce Drive in Silver Spring asked the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) to do something to improve safety for pedestrian. This spring, contractors installed new, concrete median islands; marked crosswalks along Brunett Avenue; installed curb, gutter and sidewalk modifications to ensure ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance; and completed minor roadway repairs.

Residents concerned about pedestrian safety in their neighborhoods who would like to request a traffic study may contact the MCDOT Division of Traffic Engineering by email or in writing at: The Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Engineering, 100 Edison Park Drive, 4th Floor, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. Provide contact information, include the location of concern and describe the safety issues.
