Study encompasses the architectural visioning of 13 stations and parallel bike path along the alignment which extends approximately 14-16 miles from Clarksburg, MD to Rockville, MD.
The I-270/US 15 Corridor is a vital link to other highways in the Maryland and Washington, DC region. I-270 begins at the Capital Beltway (I-495) and extends north to I-70 in Frederick, Maryland. The corridor acts as an artery between the nation's capital and points north and west. The study corridor is heavily used by commercial vehicles, as well as commuters. The level of performance for the roadway is currently sub-par, with motorists wasting precious time and gasoline sitting in traffic on a daily basis.
