Intercounty Connector bike trail opens, will run 11 miles
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — There's a new way to avoid tolls on the Intercounty Connector.
WTOP reports that a freshly paved biking and jogging path is now open between Needwood Road and Emory Lane in the Rockville-Derwood area.
The path is separated from the ICC by concrete dividers and freshly planted trees. It's the first segment of what the Maryland State Highway Administration says will be more than 11 miles of bike paths built as part of the ICC project. The paths will make it easier to travel by bicycle from the Shady Grove Metro station to the Muirkirk MARC station in Beltsville.
The next segment of the ICC for drivers is expected to open later this year or early next year.
