Question: What and Who will be the first casualty if McDOT is allowed to extend the existing Mid-County Highway across Montgomery Village Avenue?
|Standing in the median strip of Mid-County Highway (M-83) looking north. Extending M-83 would cross the intersection of Montgomery Village Ave and lie between Christopher Ct (on L) and Normandi II (on R).|
|Standing in the parking lot of Christopher Ct and looking at Normandi II Condos.|
McDOT is trying to squeeze M-83's 109 ft-wide 6-lane highway into this space.
It doesn't fit.
There is a better way to provide transit for all - not by building another highway, but by offering a variety of transportation alternatives.
