The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a public meeting to discuss the progress on the design of the remaining sections of the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT). The MBT is an important transportation route, providing connections to neighborhoods where residents live, work, and play.  Once fully completed, the MBT will be an eight-mile trail that runs from Union Station in Washington DC to Silver Spring, Maryland. The latest section being designed connects the Fort Totten Metro Station to the Takoma neighborhood.  The preliminary design for this section was completed in 2016. DDOT is currently completing the final design of this section. The key elements of the next section of the MBT include:  

  • New off-street and on-street trail segments 
  • Traffic calming features 
  • Storm water and low-impact development  
  • Traffic signals & Lighting 
  • Lighting & Utilities  
  • Maintenance of Traffic plans 
  • Landscaping plans
