Today I went with the kids to The Greek Place restaurant on Geogia Avenue, between Bonifant and Wayne. On the way back we came across this obstruction in front of the old Silver Spring Volunteer Fire Station at Silver Spring Avenue. The Station is being converted into a restaurant, and the project has moved steadily into the ROW, making it more and more difficult for pedestrians to find a safe passage. In fact, it is impossible to get by the location without walking in Georgia Avenue. This location is blocked many times when I come this way.
So, who is responsible for this location - MDSHA or Montgomery County? Is this a ROW issue, or a permitting issue? In the past this question has been knocked like a tennis ball from one bureaucracy to the other. Meanwhile, how many pedestrians are forced to walk in the street to get by here? NROW
