Construction Update on Langley Park Transit Center

Construction of the Langley Park Transit Center by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) is underway.

Located at New Hampshire Avenue and University Boulevard, the location is one of the busiest bus-only transit spots in the region. During the fall and through early spring, MTA expects to: 
  • Modify the MD 193 (University Blvd.) median and the entrances to the Langley Park and the Hampshire Langley shopping centers to create a fully signalized intersection; 
  • Make minor drainage improvements along MD 193; 
  • Modify the Lebanon Street/MD 650 (New Hampshire Ave.) traffic signal to allow left turns onto MD 650 North; 
  • Modify Anne Avenue to regulate traffic flow; 
  • Remove and replace crosswalks; and 
  • Make minor repairs to the curb at MD 193/Lebanon Street. 
At the request of the community, international and multilingual signs will guide pedestrians and advise the public that all businesses will remain open during construction. The Taco Bell is expected to remain open until spring.
