He emailed them about it and got this response
* Support the improvement of local area regional pedestrian and bicyclist facilities by public agencies
* The use of alternative travel modes will be promoted through the provision of bicyclist amenities (on-campus Class II or III bikeways and connections to area Class I bikeways, area bicycle network maps and way finding signage, racks, bike lockers, and showers located at key locations)
I wrote about the BRAC process 18 months ago and how the Naval Hospital ought to try to connect in to the three trails (Future Capital Crescent (CCT) - in green on map, Rock Creek Park - Blue, and North Bethesda - Red) that surrounds it. But as Harry points out the Transportation Management Plan doesn't even mention bicycles.
Connecting to the Rock Creek Park trail would be somewhat easy as a Rock Creek feeder stream cuts across the facility from SW to NE. Though getting under the Beltway might not be a piece of cake and it would require a new North security gate. Still, it's only about 800 feet from the trail to the Hospital edge. Another option would be to use the Cedar Lane underpass and Elmhirst Parkway.
From the Future CCT, access could be made better for those heading east by connecting the CCT using Pearl St/Maryland Avenue. This would also require some planning. Getting onto Pearl, as I recall, is not direct. And Pearl is one-way for part of the road. And finally a better Maryland Ave-Jones Bridge-Gunnell Road intersection would be needed. Improvements to Jones Bridge Road would help those who are heading west to the Hospital.
Local roads could also connect the Hospital to the North Bethesda Trail if access could be routed through the NIH property across Rockville Pike and over the planned pedestrian bridge.
