Transportation Policy Academy 2013 - DC - Part 1: Transportation-Focused Tour Hosted by Maryland Department of Transportation

The CSG Transportation Policy Academy in Washington, D.C. got underway October 28 with a transportation-focused bus tour hosted by the Maryland Department of Transportation. The tour included a stop at the future site of the Takoma Park/Langley Transit Center (now the site of a Taco Bell) and a briefing on plans for the Purple Line light-rail project, an innovative transit public-private partnership. The tour also stopped at Mid-Pike Plaza in the White Flint area of Montgomery County, where a mixed-use, transit-oriented development is under construction. Attendees also traversed the length of MD200, the Intercounty Connector as MDOT officials discussed the financing and operation of the two-year old toll road that connects Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Below is a compendium of presentations and handouts from the tour as well as additional reading on some of the topics discussed.
