Thanks to community activism from Action Committee for Transit, Friends of White Flint, and Councilmember Andrew Friedson, we received word Friday from MCDOT Traffic Engineering that they will be converting the existing flashers at the Bethesda Trolley Trail crossing of Tuckerman Lane to a full pedestrian hybrid beacon that includes a solid red light signal phase. The signal is in design now and MCDOT expects it to be up and operational by the end of the year.

We only wish it did not require a tragedy and death for our community to receive this essential pedestrian improvement.
