BRT: Is that your house?

Aww. Too bad.  The BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) system as proposed will take quite a bit of right-of-way to create the dedicated bus lanes required.  But don't worry! This BRT system will be a 'game changer.'  Take a look at the excerpt below from the January 2012 presentation to the County Planning Board from the County's Consultant, Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB).  The pink areas will be affected by needed right-of-way.  Is that your house?  Is that your house, on Old Georgetown Road, off Glenwood? Is that your house, on Georgia Ave., off Dennis? Aww.

  1. The pink areas cover single family houses, apartment buildings, medical office buildings, businesses, and churches on Georgia Avenue.
