Dobbin Road Pathway

The goal of the project is to develop a shared use pathway along Dobbin Road from Oakland Mills Road to Snowden River Parkway and add sidewalks from McGaw Road up to Stanford Blvd. The shared use path will allow cyclists to safely travel along Dobbin Road and connect to a shared use pathway at Oakland Mills Road and along Snowden River Parkway.

Overview

The Dobbin Road Pathway Phasing Map shows the extent of each segment of the project.  This cross section shows additional project details.  

Key improvements include:

  • Shared use pathway along the east side of Dobbin Road.
  • New sidewalk segments on selected locations along the west side of Dobbin Road.
  • Signalized pedestrian crossings on Dobbin Road.
