|The Metropolitan Branch Trail runs alongside the Silver Spring Transit Center, allowing|
better pedestrian and biking acccess to Metro and MARC trains.
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation has completed designs for the remaining northern section of the Metropolitan Branch Trail. That section will fill the gap between the portion built as part of the Silver Spring Transit Center and the Takoma Park section from New York Avenue and Fenton to the DC border that was built in 2004 and 2006. The trail section will feature both a bridge over Georgia Avenue and an underpass beneath Burlington Avenue. Read more on WashCycle’s website.
