Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation is planning a bike lane and sidewalk project for Goldsboro Road after a request from a local neighborhood group.

The Tulip Hill Citizens Association wants better pedestrian access along the road. Goldsboro now has one continuous sidewalk along the southern side of the roadway from Tulip Hill Terrace to a point about a quarter- mile east of Massachusetts Avenue, where the sidewalk just stops.

Project area, via MCDOTRide On’s Route 29 bus has a stop at Goldsboro and River Roads.

The project is in the facility planning stage, thus the public workshop scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Whitman High School (7100 Whittier Blvd.).

So far, the project provides for a study of a five-foot wide sidewalk linking River Road and MacArthur Boulevard and a master planned on-street bike lane. The project also might include a reconfiguration of the somewhat confusing MacArthur Boulevard intersection, near Glen Echo Park.

For more information, check out MCDOT’s information pamphlet on the project.
