“No formal decisions have been made. We are going to be looking at a variety of options to try and calm traffic down in this area,” said Andy Frank, the supervisor of environmental engineering program at Montgomery County Parks.
The idea of reducing traffic to one lane in each direction on Little Falls Parkway approaching the Capital Crescent Trail is under consideration by park engineers.
“It could be done on a temporary basis and evaluate what that produces, and then it could become part of the long-term solution,” Frank said.
“This is a park setting; this not a freeway … potentially slowing things down is definitely a possibility,” Frank said.
“We know that we need a stoplight or a Hawk signal to stop drivers when people are crossing. We probably need to lower the speed limit, and the road probably needs to be taken down to a single lane of traffic to keep it safe,” Billing said.
