MD 355 South Corridor Advisory Committee

(South of the Beltway/I-495 to the Bethesda Metro Station)


Corridor Advisory Committees (CACs) were created in 2015 as part of the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) planning project for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on the MD 355 corridor from Bethesda to Clarksburg. The MD 355 Central CAC includes the area south of I-495. The committee is made up of residents, business owners, and other stakeholders along the corridor. 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 MD 355 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 MD 355 BRT Project Page, the CAC Overview Page, and the  Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan.
