Langley Park Neighborhood Bicycle Boulevards
- Thank you to all those who were able to attend our Virtual Community Meeting on Thursday, March 18th, 2021. For those who could not attend, the presentation materials and recordings from the meeting are available for viewing from the links below.
In 2020, Prince George’s County received a Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG) grant via the Transportation Land-Use Connections(TLC) Program in the amount of $80,000, towards technical assistance to develop engineering plans for bicycle lanes and shared use roads on several local streets in the Langley Park area. The streets feed into the intersection of MD 212 (Riggs Road) and MD 193 (University Boulevard), the location of a proposed Purple Line Station.
The incoming Purple Line Station at Riggs Road presents an opportunity to improve pedestrian and bicycling facilities, to provide better connectivity to public transit, and improve multimodal transportation options. Providing options to bridge the last/first-mile gap, will make Purple Line transit use more convenient for future riders that live, work, and visit the area.
This project will serve to provide safe and convenient access for multiple modes of transportation (i.e. pedestrians, bicycles, buses, and motorists). Specific benefits would include:
- Increase walkability by enhancing safety and convenience and strategically improving streets to accommodate all users.
- Ensure pedestrian and bicycle access to the Purple Line transit system specifically Riggs Road Station.
- Provide access to transit facilities for the full range of users
