Maryland Blogger: Pedestrian Bridge from AstraZeneca to Kentlands

Pedestrian Bridge from AstraZeneca to Kentlands

Pedestrian Bridge from AstraZeneca to Kentlands


Soon it will be even easier for AstraZeneca employees to head over to the Kentlands for lunch or dinner, as design of a new pedestrian bridge is expected to begin next month.

Per the City of Gaithersburg:

Earlier this week, Deputy City Manager Dennis Enslinger lead a resolution on a funding agreement w/ MedImmune, LLC (AstraZeneca) for design/construction of a pedestrian bridge across Great Seneca Hwy located just north of Great Seneca Hwy/Kentlands Blvd/Orchard Ridge Dr

MedImmune will be paying $4 million dollars for the project over the course of the next two years.

The Funding Agreement outlines the roles and responsibilities of both the City of Gaithersburg and MedImmune, LLC.  The project is currently programmed in the FY20-25 Capital Improvement Plan.  Design will begin in the spring of 2020, and completion of the pedestrian bridge is anticipated in the fall of 2022.

Hi Roy Kelley pedestian bridges are a bonus for any employee of a company that's located near a major highway..... and I'm a fan of brisk early morning power walks....

Good afternoon Roy Kelley - I think that would be quite a welcome change.

That sounds like a great idea.  I remember several years ago, when Intel made a bigger presence in Folsom, California.  A new highway 50 overcrossing was built to accommodate them.

It sounds like a very beneficial project.  We love ours in Elk Grove.  It is our only "hill" in Elk Grove and our we train on it all the time.

Roy, This seems this will be a welcoming additon for the employees, whether to get some lunch or take a stroll during their break...

That sounds like a very smart thing to do and will keep people much safer when they need to cross the street.
