Support Option 1 for the Met Branch Trail
in Silver Spring
On Wednesday, June 22nd the Transportation and the Environment Committee of the Montgomery County Council will review the recommendations and give design guidance to the Department of Public Works and Transportation on their preferred option. Now is the opportunity for trail avocates to express their support for the best Met Branch Trail possible.
Earlier this year the Montgomery County Planning Board selected Option 1 as their preferred alternative for the routing of the Metropolitan Branch Trail in Silver Spring. This option is also the one preferred by WABA and other trail advocates because it provides for a bike/ped bridge over Georgia Ave as well as a tunnel beneath East -West Highway as called for in the Silver Spring Central Business District Master Plan.
What You Can Do to Help
WABA encourages to write to Councilmember Nancy Floreen, chair of the Transportation and the Environment Committee to express your support for a Option 1.
