Montgomery County Executive Isiah Legget wants to expand Suburban Hospital by closing down an access road used by residents in the area. The recommendation is already drawing criticism.
Legget has asked the County Council to approve the hospital's request to shut down a portion of Lincoln Street.
Residents who live adjacent to the hospital don't like the idea. They say it would cut off their access to Old Georgetown Road. Suburban has proposed demolishing nine homes along that portion of Lincoln street in order to build a parking garage.
The council has not scheduled a vote on the street closure.
