Bicyclists commuting from Takoma Park may have an easier time getting around the city next year, once new signage for The New Hampshire Ave (The New Ave) project is installed.
The project cost $5,000 and is slated to be completed in 2013.
Funded through the Maryland Bikeways Program, its goal is to connect Takoma Park neighborhoods along with the Sligo Creek Trail, which is already connected to Wheaton, Northwest Branch and the Paint
Branch Trail systems.
Upcoming considerations for the project:
- Signage along Elm and Poplar Avenues
- An updated bike map at Sligo Creek Trail
Where do you think the signage can be most visible to cyclists using the trail? Comment below.
Residents can learn about The New Ave biking project Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Takoma Park Community Center located at 7500 Maple Avenue (inside the Hydrangea Room).
