The project, which took roughly five years to complete, was started to increase the capacity of, and improve access to, the Medical Center Metrorail Station, as well as enhance pedestrian/bicyclist safety between the west and east sides of Rockville Pike (MD 355), according to MCDOT in a press release on Wednesday.
“This was one of the most important improvements to pedestrian safety in Montgomery County in recent years,” said County Executive Marc Elrich of the project in a tweet back in February.
