County Council to Hold Public Hearing for Proposed U.S. 29 BRT Project on April 18

The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing on County Executive Ike Leggett’s proposed plan for Bus Rapid Transit line for the U.S. 29 corridor on April 18, according to a news release.

Leggett’s proposed U.S. 28 BRT line would run between Burtonsville and Industrial Parkway in a dedicated lane and from Industrial Parkway to Downtown Silver Spring in mixed traffic.

BRT is a type of public transit system where vehicles run on dedicated paths that help avoid regular vehicle traffic that make fewer stops than traditional, making commuting faster.

The public hearing will be held in the Third Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville and begins at 7:30 p.m.
