Work Begins on the Capital Crescent Trail

Monday, January 29, 2018

PEPCO will start work on the  Capital Crescent Trail in January to remove some trees. Work will continue through the end of the month with workers and vehicles entering the trail from River Road to get to the work area. Trail users should watch for flaggers and directional signs around work area located south of Mass Ave., between Brookeway Drive and Duvall Drive.

Montgomery Parks is starting a project to construct the Capital Crescent Plaza this winter.  The eight-month project will build a plaza on the west side of the Capital Crescent Trail, just north of River Road.  When complete, it will contain a stone sitting wall with a decorative pergola, and better access between the plaza and the Capital Crescent Trail as well as improving a connection to River Road.
