Come witness the inconvenient truth about building Mid-County Highway Extended (M-83) in your neighborhood.

Take an informative two hour hike with us, round-trip, to see where the inconceivably proposed M-83 (six-lane highway) is designed to be built:

  • Crossing Watkins Mill Rd. adjacent to Watkins Mill Elementary School
  • Replacing Blohm Nature Park with a 6-lane highway
  • Severing properties in the Clusters and Ridges of Stedwick Homes Corp
  • Bisecting Seneca-Whetstone HOA
  • Eliminating portions of Seneca Creek Greenway Trail 
  • Blanketing wetlands and mature forests of S.C. G. Trail with bridges and pavement
The TAME Coalition is made up of 44 organizations which cover HOAs, elected officials, faith communities, political action affiliates, and environmental groups.  We are acting to halt the proposed 6-lane M-83 Highway through Montgomery Village, Gaithersburg and Germantown.
Come join us on the “NO M-83” Walk.  Drop-ins are welcome. Walks along your area are scheduled every month.
