After more than a year of advocacy, we have great news from SHA. I’ve cut and pasted their email below. I’m delighted that our efforts are getting results. Having no-turn-on-red on all four corners of Marinelli and Route 355 has been a major priority since that is the busiest pedestrian crossing in all of Montgomery County outside of a central business district.
“We are pleased to share that our MDOT SHA Office of Traffic and Safety (OOTS) recently approved establishing a “No Turn on Red” for eastbound Marinelli Road at MD 355 and for southbound MD 355 at Marinelli Road. OOTS is currently coordinating with our local partners Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) regarding “No Turn on Red” sign fabrication and installation. We anticipate installation by the end of February, weather permitting. MCDOT operates and maintains most state-owned intersections on the state’s behalf, including overheard sign installation.”
