SHA to Begin Bethesda Trolley Trail Improvement Project

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) has awarded a contract to construct a 10-foot-wide, shared use, hiker-biker path along Old Georgetown Road (MD 187) that will connect with the Bethesda Trolley Trail section north of McKinley Street. Construction will begin this summer and is expected to be completed by December of this year.

SHA is also making improvements at MD 187 and Cedar Lane and is installing an eight-foot trail section between Alta Vista Road and Charles Street.

Once the Bethesda Trolley Trail project and Cedar Lane projects are completed, there will be a continuous trail along MD 187 from Charles Street to north of McKinley Street.
