The Bi-County Transitway International Corridor Planning Study is a preliminary evaluation of the social, physical and economic development potential provided by the Bi-County Transitway (formerly Purple Line) in the International Corridor. The International Corridor is an area approximately one-half mile deep along University Boulevard (MD 193) from West Park Drive to the border with Montgomery County and Takoma Park. The planning study provides a demographic profile of the Corridor and summarizes a number of earlier studies and projects undertaken for this area. It provides an initial evaluation of the transit-oriented development (TOD) potential of three nodes and assesses the Corridor’s economic and physical characteristics opportunities and challenges. The study recommends the next planning actions that should be considered to advance General Plan goals for this area of Prince George’s County.
