Metropolitan Branch Trail
Pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the CSX/MARC rail tracks at the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station, NE
Dear Mr. Laden:
During its meeting of 25 January 2005, the Commission reviewed the conceptual design for the pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the CSX/MARC rail tracks at the Rhode Island Metro Station. Of the three schemes presented, the Commission’s preference is for the truss design, due to its simplicity and response to the context of the railroad. However, the Commission would like to encourage further research to enlarge the scope of possible designs.
The Commission looks forward to reviewing further developments as the project progresses. As always, the staff is available to assist you.
/s/Frederick J. Lindstrom
