Montrose Parkway East is important to long-term transportation connectivity to the White Flint area. Should the County Council choose to delay funding of this road, Friends of White Flint recommends the Council ensure Montrose Parkway East CIP funds serve their original purpose — improving transportation in the White Flint area.
We strongly urge the Council to use the Montrose Parkway funding to advance the White Flint sector plan by funding essential transportation projects including the revitalization of Rockville Pike, the eastern workaround, and the second metro entrance.
