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.
