Please come to a meeting on Thursday, April 11 to share your thoughts on a potential trail connection to the Cheverly Metro Station from parts of Chevery south of Route 50.
Location: Cheverly Town Hall - 6401 Forest Road
Time: 6 PM to 8 PM (before the Town Meeting)
Date: Thursday, April 11
As part of a larger initiative with the Maryland National Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) to develop healthy transportation options that are safe, comfortable and convenient to several destinations in the region, many residents expressed an interest in better connections to the Cheverly Metro.
M-NCPPC is performing this study to explore the feasibility of a trail connection between parts of Cheverly south of Route 50 (the Old Fourth Ward) and the Cheverly Metro Station. A secondary part of the study is to evaluate alternatives for connecting Cheverly to the Anacostia River Trail south of Route 50.
The meeting will have a brief presentation on the project, and participants will have multiple opportunities to provide input, at the meeting and throughout the process. M-NCPPC is seeking input on community interest, desired alignment, environmental constraints, security concerns, and other elements.
The study is funded by a Transportation and Land Use Connections Program (TLC) grant from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. There is not yet funding identified for the trail.
Presentation materials will be available for download on the Town website following the meeting.
