This project will provide a continuous curb and gutter and an 8-foot-wide asphalt walkway along the south side of Magarity Road. New crosswalks across Magarity Road are proposed at Tremayne Place, Cherri Drive and Ware Road. Westgate School drop off/pick-up turning movements will be simplified and made safer. Several bus stops will be relocated. Several sidewalk ramps will be upgraded to current standards. A new 8-foot wide asphalt walkway will also be added in front of the Westgate School.
This project was part of the 2014 County Dialogue on Transportation. Residents of Pimmit Hills, the neighborhood south of Magarity Road, and the Westgate Elementary School requested a walkway on the south side of the street to allow more children to walk and bike to school safely. The project will provide connectivity to the school, with other area planned trail projects, and to the McLean Metrorail Station.
