Fenton St. Protected Bike Lane Virtual Meeting

Potential design for Fenton Street Protected Bike Lane in Silver Spring, MD

Since January 2020, Montgomery County Department of Transportation staff have been busy planning the final major piece of downtown Silver Spring’s protected bicycle network: a protected bike lane on Fenton Street. On November 18, MCDOT is hosting a virtual public meeting to present findings from their study and to share design alternatives for what protected bike lanes on Fenton St could look like.

Please join us to learn about the project and help us send a clear message that Silver Spring needs a bikeable and walkable Fenton Street.

Let’s Get Rolling! Internet Coffee Hour

A metal WABA coffee mug sits on a rock ledge, there are grasses and trees behind. Its a nice vague generic artsy coffee on ledge vibe.
