WABA continues to update trail users on the status of DC trails - this time the Met Branch Trail's Fort Totten section.
DDOT and Rock Creek National Park officials have two pieces of legal agreements and permits to complete before design and construction [of the Fort Totten section of the Met Branch Trail] can start. A memorandum of understanding regarding the trail’s design-review process, maintenance, and operation is still not finished. Also, NPS needs to issue a special-use permit for access to Rock Creek Park for construction activities. Both agreements should be finalized in the next few months after lawyers from both agencies give their approval. DDOT has funding obligated for fiscal year 2013/2014 and construction funds for fiscal year 2015/16.
