Due to an unfortunate death to someone close to me the field trip has been rescheduled. Details of the new date coming soon. Thank you.
Join ANC 5C03 along with the Capital Trails Coalition and WABA as we walk our proposed connection to the Anacostia River Trail. This connection has been a “long time coming”and will provide a vital transportation alternative for residents of Ward 5. I will post another article on the background of the project and how we got to where we are today. DDOT under Mayor Bowser’s administration has done a tremendous job responding to the disparity of transit alternatives in the community. DDOT has assigned a consultant for the environmental assessment which brings us another step closer to this becoming a reality.
Please note that this is a walking tour, and is not yet accessible by bicycle. However, you can secure your bike at the meet up location.
