Naylor Road Metro Station Access Improvement Study: Through a grant from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Transportation/Land Use Connections (TLC) Program, M-NCPPC and consultants, Kittelson & Associates, Inc. prepared a study to recommend improvements to existing walking and bicycling conditions in the vicinity of the Naylor Road Metro Station. The final report was delivered in July 2011.

WMATA Station Access Improvement Study: This study was initiated by WMATA in February 2011 to consider the need for access improvement measures at the Naylor Road Station. The study will evaluate existing conditions and project future needs if joint development of WMATA property and other adjacent property increases roadway traffic and Metro ridership. The study will consider vehicular flow in the station area; determine future bus bay facility needs and future parking demands; and, propose options for replacing Metro parking based on proposed redevelopment concepts.

State of Maryland programs and projects: Governor O’Malley formally designated Naylor Road, along with 14 other transit stations in Maryland, as TOD centers, so that resources of the Maryland Department of Transportation and other state agencies can be prioritized and used to facilitate TOD. The state has allocated $650,000 to design pedestrian improvements and traffic calming in the Naylor Road Station vicinity. The design will focus on pedestrian and bicycle improvements that are recommended in the 2008 Approved Branch Avenue Corridor Sector Plan. The design will focus on crosswalks, countdown timers, bike lanes, sidewalks, and on-street parking. The process began in May 2011.

MD5The MD 5 - Branch Avenue Metro Access project is an approved, but unfunded, project of the Maryland State Highway Administration to create a new dedicated grade separated access road from the Capital Beltway and Branch Avenue directly into the Branch Avenue Metro Station. Northbound Branch Avenue will be depressed and a new overpass will carry the southbound turn lanes over Branch Avenue to a new four-lane divided access road.
