Progress Made on Improving Pedestrian Crossing at Colesville Road and Sligo Creek Parkway

January 19, 2016: The community has made good progress in addressing this issue. On January 18th, community members held a meeting with local public transportation officials at this intersection, where officials were able to observe pedestrian and vehicle traffic at the intersection and discuss possible solutions. Proposed solutions from the meeting include repainting the crosswalks, increasing pedestrian signage, delaying timing of turn arrows, extending crossing time for pedestrians, installing a red light camera and/or increased, lighting of the crosswalk along the trail section. We will be continuing to engage with our area transportation officials over the next several months to ensure that some, if not all measures, will be put in place. We will be sure to keep you abreast of updates on the issue as they become available.
