|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.
