The project area includes a 0.65-mile long section of the “Glen Echo Trolley” trail from Nebraska Avenue, NW to Galena Place, NW including a 110-ft long pedestrian bridge crossing Arizona Avenue and an associated pedestrian access ramp.
The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate or replace the superstructure of the Arizona Avenue pedestrian bridge and ramp, to provide proper clearance over Arizona Avenue, and to provide an all-weather surfaced trail for the full length of the project. In addition, during the preliminary design phase adding a pedestrian access ramp on the south side of Arizona Avenue will be evaluated.
The project will also include drainage, stormwater management facilities, and landscaping along the trail. This bridge and trail project will upgrade the existing facilities to current standards and provide improved access from the neighborhood to the Palisades Recreation Center. The project is currently in the 30 percent design phase.
