US 29 South Corridor Advisory Committee

(From Capital Beltway to Silver Spring Transit Center)

Corridor Advisory Committees (CACs) were created in 2015 as part of the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service on US 29 from the Burtonsville to downtown Silver Spring. The US 29 South CAC represents the area south of I-495, The Capital Beltway. The committee is made up of residents, business owners, and other stakeholders along the corridor.  The CAC meetings allow MCDOT to both give updates on the project to members of the community and to gather feedback from stakeholders along this portion of the corridor. Upcoming CAC meeting times and locations for the US 29 Central CAC can be found in the News and Upcoming Events section of this page. The public is welcome to attend and observe the committee discussions.

For more information on this corridor, see the US 29 BRT Project Page, the CAC Overview Page, and the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan.
