State Highway to Hold BRT Open House

Transportation officials will field questions about Veirs Mill Road project on Wednesday.

An open house on Wednesday in Wheaton will give residents a chance to learn more about a planned bus rapid transit system along Veirs Mill Road, the State Highway Administration announced in a news release.

SHA will present information about the planned transit project between the Wheaton and Rockville Metro stations. There will be no formal presentations. Attendees will be able to view displays about the project from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Multi Purpose Room of the Holiday Park Senior Center.

Representatives from SHA, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation and the Maryland Transit Authority will discuss a BRT planning study. They will explain the system’s operations and the need for the project and will compare it to other Montgomery County BRT studies. Representatives from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority will join the state and county representatives at display stations to hear residents’ comments and concerns.
