Portion of Metropolitan Branch Trail Opened in Silver Spring;

Will Enhance Accessibility Around Transit Center

A portion of the Metropolitan Branch Trail at the Silver Spring Metro Station has been opened to enhance accessibility around the new Transit Center which is under construction. The trail reestablishes pedestrian connections from the northbound MARC train platform.

The recently opened portion of the trail extends from the south end of the MARC train platform to the transit plaza in front of the Metro Station.

During February, weather permitting, the trail will be extended to Ripley Street.

More information about the Transit Center project is available on the County’s website.
