For the past year, the City has been working with Toole Design Group on a citywide Transportation Plan. After months of public data collecting, Toole has released a draft of the find report for the Hyattsville Transportation Plan. 

You can find several documents attached to this forum: the Hyattsville Transportation Plan final report, Appendix A: Existing Conditions Memo, Appendix B: Future Condition Scenarios, Appendix C: Wayfinding Plan, and Appendix D: Planning Level Cost Estimates. 

Toole Design Group will be presenting the Hyattsville Transportation Plan at the October 1 City Council meeting. The report will come back to the City Council for adoption on November 5, 2018. Any comments you have on the report can be submitted on this page for the City Council to take into consideration when the plan comes up for adoption. Comments should be submitted by October 29, 2018 in order to be viewed by the City Council in advance of their November meeting. 

Create a bike boulevard on Queensbury Road, which would improve the bicycle network in the City and the region. A bike boulevard on Queensbury Road would improve the City's bicycle network by connecting the proposed bicycle lanes on Belcrest Road (which in the final plan's map end at Queens Chapel Road) with the proposed bicycle boulevard on 40th Ave, and create a key east-west route through the northern part of the city. A Queensbury Road bike boulevard would also significantly improve the bicycle network regionally by connecting the proposed bike lanes near PG Plaza (Belcrest Road, Adelphi Road, and Toledo Terrace) with the bicycle sharing lanes installed on Queensbury and Riverdale Roads in Riverdale Park (, which would give Hyattsville residents an improved route to the Trolley Trail (e.g., Riverdale Station, College Park), the Riverdale MARC Station, the Anacostia Tributary Trail where it intersects at Riverdale Road, and the future Purple Line stations. It would also directly connect several of the proposed Capital Bikeshare stations to be installed in the area.

We need better, safer biking roues in an east/west direction. We need at least one east/west bikeway connecting both sides of town. Queensbury is one of the few true east/west thruways in the city, but if it makes sense to fit it into a one way / one-side-only parking street, then so be it. We do need something kind of east/west bike connector though. And I'm not talking about a sharrows; they're simply not safe, even on slower-moving traffic streets.
