Broad Coalition Supports “Sustainable Transportation Corridor”

Broad Coalition Supports “Sustainable Transportation Corridor”

A broad coalition of organizations, including the Sierra Club, Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce, and Friends of White Flint, has asked Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley to designate Rockville Pike as a “Sustainable Transportation Corridor.” Earlier the City of Rockville also asked the Governor for this designation.

STC designation would permit intergovernmental cooperation between local governments and Metro, and would prioritize the Pike for funding and other government support. Under the White Flint Sector Plan, the Pike is recommended for comprehensive evolution from a traffic-snarled, pedestrian hazard, to a green, walkable boulevard with special transit features.
