Prince George’s County Council Vice Chair Dannielle Glaros (D) - District 3, in a continued effort to improve pedestrian, cyclist and driver safety along MD-410, encourages residents to attend the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT/SHA) Community Meeting focusing on the Pedestrian Safety Improvement Project along MD410.

“As the County continues to grow and thrive, we have more motorists, pedestrians and cyclist sharing the roadways,” said Vice Chair Glaros. “We want to make sure that every resident is able to travel safely and I am extremely pleased that the State Highway Administration is presenting a plan to the community to improve pedestrian safety and accessibility along MD-410.
