Citywide design and construction of pedestrian and bicycle improvements on selected streets.
about the projects
Streets have been prioritized based on the Complete and Green Streets Policy that was adopted by the City in 2016. They are funded annually through the City's Capital Improvement Program.
complete and green streets implementation plan study
The project consultant, A. Morton Thomas and Associates (AMT), reviewed the City street network and staff’s matrix of connector streets and recommended initial priority locations for the installation of sidewalks. The City Council prioritized five street segments for 30% design. These are: Edmonston Road (between Old Calvert Road and Bryn Mawr Road), 52nd Avenue (between Huron Street and Narragansett Parkway), Cherokee Street (between 48th Place and Rhode Island Avenue), Bowdoin Avenue (between Erskine Road and Harvard Road), and St. Andrews Place (between Duke Street and DePauw Place).
The final report and 30% design plans can be found in the Project Documents section.
Funding for the plan was provided through the Planning Assistance to Municipalities and Communities (PAMC) program offered by The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), Prince George's County Planning Department.

The City of College Park hired consultants RK&K in February of 2021 to design sidewalk along the north side of Cherokee Street between 48th Place and Rhode Island Avenue. This sidewalk will tie into the recently completed developer-installed sidewalk between 48th Place and Route One to create full pedestrian access along Cherokee Street between Baltimore Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue.
Construction was completed in December 2022.
The City of College Park is designing sidewalk along the east side of Edmonston Road in the College Park Estates and Yarrow Subdivisions, from Old Calvert Road to the northern boundary of the City. Edmonston Road was identified as a location where a sidewalk is needed for safe pedestrian mobility to bus stops and eventually to the Calvert Road Community Park along Old Calvert Road. WSSC has replaced the water main along Edmonston Road, which provided an opportunity for the City to construct new sidewalk before resurfacing.
Construction has begun as of February 2023 and is anticipated to be completed by August 2023.
A community meeting was held on March 2, 2023 to review the project with City officials. Additional community outreach and engagement will continue throughout the construction phase of the project.
49th avenue in berwyn
The City of College Park received a Community Development Block Grant to construct a sidewalk along 49th Avenue between Patuxent Avenue and Pontiac Street along the Berwyn Neighborhood Playground. A new ADA-compliant sidewalk will be added to improve safety for pedestrians.
Construction was completed in May 2022.
The City of College Park received a Community Development Block Grant to construct an improved pedestrian connection where Princeton Avenue approaches Fraternity Row. A new ADA-compliant sidewalk was constructed to improve upon the existing dead-end gravel roadway. The project made considerable safety and aesthetic improvements by adding new asphalt, curbs, gutters, and sidewalks. All improvements will be completed within the City of College Park right-of-way. The construction was completed in late spring of 2021.
As part of the City's Complete & Green Streets Policy, the design phase for a sidewalk along the east side of 52nd Avenue between Huron Street and Narragansett Parkway has started. Construction is anticipated to commence in late summer 2023 after the conclusion of the design phase. Driveway aprons and curbs will be reconstructed as necessary, and all impacted areas will be restored throughout the limits of the project.
A community engagement survey was mailed to residents within the project limits, with responses due on March 9, 2023. Community meetings and additional community outreach will be scheduled during the project.
As part of the City's Complete and Green Streets Policy, the survey phase for a sidewalk along Ruatan Street between 48th Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue has started. The project is in the preliminary engineering stage. Concepts will be prepared for the community to review. The actual design will begin in FY2024, with construction following in FY2025.
A community engagement letter was mailed to residents within the project limits in February 2023. Community meetings and additional community outreach will be scheduled during the project.
