15% Design Plans

On August 15, 2014, the CCT project team delivered 15% Concept Preliminary Engineering Plans to MTA for review. Since then, the MTA has been gathering comments on the plans from agency stakeholders such as State Highway Administration, Montgomery County Department of Transportation, the Cities of Gaithersburg and Rockville, and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. The plans contain more detailed engineering for the Phase I section of the CCT. This level of design detail is used to assess the environmental, cultural, and property impacts of the proposed transitway and develop a more accurate construction cost estimate.

Through the design process the transitway alignment has changed in three locations since the Locally Preferred Alternative was announced in May 2012.

  • Along the CSX tracks by Metropolitan Grove, the transitway would shift from the north side of the tracks to the south side of the tracks.
  • Along Muddy Branch Road between Darnestown Road and Great Seneca Highway, the transitway would be located in the existing median of Muddy Branch Road.
  • Near Key West Avenue, the transitway alignment would shift from the east side to the west side of Broschart Road at an intersection with an existing driveway. It would then cross under Key West Avenue.
