Find Your Neighborhood on Updated Maps of M-83 Alternatives 4,8, & 9
TAME Coalition has received a copy of the Midcounty Corridor Study map for Alternatives #4, #8 and #9. It shows detailed layouts of the proposed six-lane M-83 highway routes which will cut through established neighborhoods in Montgomery Village, Gaithersburg and Germantown. These routes promise to destroy pristine forest and wetlands in Montgomery County's Seneca Creek Watershed, North Germantown-Greenway Parkland, Whetstone Run and South Valley Park.
Zoom in on your home address to see how this road will damage your property values and devastate your neighborhood's surrounding ecosystem.
In 2013, there are multiple transportation systems already in place that offer viable alternatives to McDOT's obsolete six-lane highway design called M-83. Forward-looking, sustainable alternatives include widening existing roads (without converting them to highways), improving intersections, creating reverse lanes on Rt. 355 in the upcounty region, designating bus lanes on I-270, building the CCT, and expanding access to full MARC Train service. The TAME Coalition advocates these progressive alternatives to M-83.
