County, White Flint mall property owner reach tentative deal on reopening shortcut through property


After months of community organizing by nearby residents, Montgomery County and the owner of the property that formerly housed the White Flint Mall have reached a tentative deal to reopen a path that connects a shopping center on Nicholson Lane to Garrett Park and farther areas south.

The shortcut, which is about 300 feet long, has been used by bicycle commuters, pedestrians and other residents who wanted to avoid traveling around to Rockville Pike and traveling north and south to get to the shopping center and other points. 

Scott Peterson, a spokesman for County Executive Marc Elrich, said the county attorney’s office and Department of Transportation officials have been working with Lerner Enterprises — the owner of the White Flint mall property — to reach a deal, but couldn’t provide more information on what it entailed.

“The County and the Mall have tentatively reached an agreement that would enable a path to be opened by the end of September for the community’s use until the Mall is redeveloped,” Peterson wrote in an email.

“We continue to work with the county and hope to have the path open by month’s end,” a spokesperson for Lerner Enterprises wrote in an email.

WUSA first reported the news of the path potentially being reopened.
