Flower and Sligo Creek Traffic Calming
This intersection has long been a source of concern for the adjacent Long Branch Sligo neighborhood due to the speed of traffic entering the neighborhood from Sligo Creek Parkway. City Council has authorized staff to develop the project plan and request permission from Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPPC), the owners of the Parkway, to initiate an intersection redesign.
The project plan has been developed to a ninety-five (95%) design stage. The plan establishes a “T” intersection while providing treatment facilities in the existing roadway shoulder to treat surface water prior to entering Sligo Creek.
A public meeting to review the design is scheduled for October 16, 2017, at the Community Center (Lilac Room) from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
The project must go through the detailed design and MNCPPC review and approval, followed by permitting. If approved, the construction timeframe is not yet known but is anticipated for summer of 2018.
