Rock Creek Park Multi-Use Trail and Pedestrian Bridge Project Public Meeting #2 on September 7, 2021

(Washington, DC) — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and the National Park Service (NPS) will host their second public meeting to update the public on the construction progress made year to date and outline construction activities for the next phase of the Rehabilitation of Rock Creek Park Multi-Use Trail and Pedestrian Bridge project.

DDOT will continue to rehabilitate and construct more the 3.7 miles of the paved, multi-use trail, which spans Wards 1 through 4 from M Street in Georgetown to Broad Branch Road NW. This public meeting will give residents and stakeholders an update of work accomplished year to date and an overview of the next steps—to include the identified next work areas, the upcoming construction schedule, and what the public should expect during this phase of construction.

What:         Public Meeting #2 – Project progress update, review of the upcoming construction schedule, and impact to trail users

When:        September 7, 2021, 6:30 to 7:30 pm

Where:       (Online) rebrand.ly/RockCreekParkTrail2

Event Number: 180 303 9001

Event Password: September7!

Dial-in: (audio only): Call +1-202-860-2110. Access Code: 180 303 9001. An Attendee ID is not required, press # to join.

Accessibility:   ASL interpreters will be available. The meeting will be recorded, and captions will be added before it is posted on the website.

The project consists of streambank stabilization, significant storm drain improvements, reconstruction of an existing retaining wall, trail reconstruction, and widening, including the use of permeable pavement. The upgraded trail will be 8’ to 10’ wide and the surface material used will be dense mix asphalt and porous asphalt. These improvements will help drain stormwater from the project and result in reduced erosion and trail maintenance.

A key feature of the project is a new 110-foot pedestrian bridge just south of the existing Beach Drive tunnel near the Smithsonian National Zoo. The new bridge will move bicyclists and pedestrians away from the current narrow sidewalk directly adjacent to vehicular traffic to a safer, dedicated path that will improve connectivity between the Rock Creek Multi-Use Trail and the Zoo Loop Trail. The project will repair the streambank and trail that has previously collapsed near the National Zoo. The project will also add 0.9 miles of newly constructed trail alongside Piney Branch Parkway between Beach Drive and Arkansas Avenue NW, which will provide new access to the park and trail.
