On December 3, 2013, members of the CCT Project Team met with residents of Mission Hills to discuss their concerns about the transitway, its location relative to their homes, and vehicular access to their community. Residents expressed concern that the addition of the transitway, along with the existing congestion on Muddy Branch Road, would make it difficult to exit the community during morning and afternoon peak travel times. Mission Drive is the only access point to the Mission Hills community of 52 homes. Consequently, the MTA agreed to study options to address the community’s concerns.

The resulting study evaluated four options and compared them to the alignment shown at the October 2013 public meeting. View the four options. The study compared the options including the basis of transit operations, traffic and travel time impacts, costs, stations, stormwater management, and environmental resources. View the full study.

The results of the study were shared at a community meeting with Mission Hills on May 20, 2014. Feedback was provided by residents of the community and additional comments can be made here. No additional studies are proposed at this time.
