Robert Looper III an ANC 5C commission has proposed a connection from the Fort Lincoln/Gateway area to the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail via the New York Avenue/Route 50 Bridge. Not so long ago I would've thought the idea crazy, but the MoveDC (page B13) plan does show a trail connection across this bridge
This resolution passed unanimously by the ANC 5C Commission and was enthusiastically received by the Developer of Fort Lincoln. We need your help to make this a reality by contacting DDOT and letting them know that it’s time to #maketheconnection!
I think it's a great idea (and I've promoted a similar one before).
