MD 5 Branch Avenue Metro Access Road Phase II

The project includes a 1/2-mile reconstruction of northbound MD 5 and the construction of Woods Way, a new multi-modal connection to the Branch Avenue Metro Station in Prince George’s County.

Floura Teeter provided streetscape design, pedestrian circulation improvements, ADA compliance and access to the Branch Avenue Metro Station. Work included landscape site assessment and development of: concept plans, roadside tree permit, streetscape and roundabout planting, decorative crosswalks, landscape screening, and planting design for two stormwater management areas – all using context sensitive design solutions. Floura Teeter coordinated with SHA a local non-profit organization to save and relocate existing street trees in advance of the construction start.

In addition to design, Floura Teeter provided QA/QC reviews for the landscape elements and provided Phase V (construction administration) services throughout construction.

The improvements will enhance important transit-oriented development opportunities around the Metro station.
