In May 2020, the City of Takoma Park was awarded a Metropolitan-Washington Council of Governments Technical Assistance Grant for $50,000 to develop an initial design concept for a Complete Streets redesign of Maple Avenue from the Sligo Creek Trail to the DC Line. Toole Design Group was selected as the contractor for this project.


The goal of the Maple Avenue Complete Street project is to strengthen transportation connections in the City of Takoma Park by redesigning Maple Avenue to prioritize pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users to provide safer, more convenient, and more comfortable travel for all roadway users. For 70 years we have put our focus on cars and trucks and now we are Focused on People!


On January 26 and 27, 2021, the City of Takoma Park and Toole Design Group held focus group meetings on the Maple Avenue Complete Street Redesign project. Residents were asked to take a look at the Maple Avenue corridor and give input about their observations of how the street functions now and what might be possible in terms of multimodal streetscape enhancements
and traffic calming measures.


Design work is expected to be completed by June 30, 2021.
