This money is intended to provide:
- Spot road improvements to increase roadway capacity, reduce congestion, improve safety, and improve transit acces ($16 million)
- Pedestrian improvements to improve capacity, enhance safety and complete missing pedestrian links that connect neighborhoods, and improve access to schools, Metrorail stations and activity centers ($78 million)
- Bicycle improvements that include developing new bicycle facilities, constructing trails, adding bicycle parking and enhancing accessibility ($6 million)
The bonds are also one of the many funding sources identified to pay for $1.4 billion in transportation priorities over the next six years. Due to the flexibility of bond funds, projects like spot roadway, pedestrian, and bicycle projects can be funded and implemented efficiently and expeditiously. These projects were identified through extensive public outreach and engagement, called the Countywide Dialogue on Transportation.
