Bikeway Master Plan
Bikeway Master Plan Update
Broadwood Dr Before and After
Broadwood Drive - Before and After Bike Lanes
Bicycling in Rockville is for all types of trips; for all types of people; for all parts of the City.

The Rockville Bikeway Master Plan is in the process of being updated, and we need your help! With this update to the Plan, we have the opportunity to provide a safe and connected network of bicycle facilities to give people more transportation options.

Click on the links below to see a full pdf version of the Bikeway Master Plan draft as well as additional information on the plan:

  • View the preliminary discussion on impacts to on-street parking here. Note: The role of the plan is to provide a vision that recommends a bicycle network with certain bicycle facilities but does not discuss how each recommendation would be implemented. When time is ripe for implementation of specific projects, staff will develop several options and work with neighborhoods and other stakeholders before a project is finalized.

Note: The February 2014 draft of the Bikeway Master Plan is the only draft of the plan available. Staff proposed the edits at the link above in response to the first round of public testimony received as well as from comments from the Planning Commission. But the official draft of the Plan won't be edited until staff is directed to do so from the Planning Commission. When an updated draft is available, it will be located on this page and this message will disappear.
