On Thursday, July 8th, 2021, staff from Community Planning and the consultant team from Smart Growth America kicked off the Southern Avenue Metro Station Area Pedestrian Accessibility Study. The study is essential in advancing recommended pedestrian safety, access, and wayfinding improvements for the Oxon Run Park Trail. It will be critical that these improvements connect the existing and proposed trail connections in Washington, D.C. to the Southern Avenue and Naylor Road Metro Stations in Prince George’s County. This work includes an assessment of the current state of pedestrian infrastructure along five proposed alternatives (see proposed trail connections) within and surrounding the Southern Avenue Metro Station, coordination of affected agencies (Prince George’s County and Washington, D.C.), property owners, and property managers. The project team will also explore the conceptual design of lighting, wayfinding, and other pedestrian improvements to improve the pedestrian experience at the station via opportunities for kiosks, pavilions, and public art.

Stay tuned for more news and chances to provide feedback to the project!
