Today, Montgomery County Councilmember Hucker and DC Ward 4 Councilmember Brandon Todd met in Silver Spring to coordinate efforts around the 16th Street Traffic Circle. The Traffic Circle has been the site of routine traffic and safety incidents for several years. Both representatives are in the first years of their respective terms, and they are looking at this problem with fresh perspectives, and a commitment to bring their respective jurisdictions together to make progress.
Earlier in the month Councilmember Todd’s office organized a site visit of the area with DC Department of Transportation, DC Department of General Services, and the Mayor’s Office. Councilmember Hucker’s office is also working to schedule a similar site visit with officials from Montgomery County Department of Transportation, and the Maryland State Highway Administration.
Both Councilmembers agreed to facilitate coordinating meetings with their offices as well as stakeholders from DC, Montgomery County, and the State of Maryland to discuss both immediate and long-term actions to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety at the 16th Street Traffic Circle.
