Md. hearing on MoCo transitway

By Katherine Shaver

The Maryland Transit Administration will hold a public hearing Dec. 15 on its study of a proposed north-south transitway in upper Montgomery County, between the Shady Grove Metro station and the Clarksburg area.

The transit agency is scheduled to release its supplemental environmental impact statement on the proposal, known as the Corridor Cities Transitway, Nov. 30 on its Web site.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) has not yet announced whether he will choose light rail or bus rapid transit for the line, which does not have any construction funding. The Montgomery County Council has endorsed light rail.

Light rail is estimated to cost at least $999 million, and a busway is estimated to cost at least $533 million, according to the state's most recently released analysis.

The hearing will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park, 506 S. Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg.
