Pr. Geo. trail to connect Md. to D.C.

By Washington Post editors

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) announced Wednesday that construction has started on a two-mile trail project in Prince George’s County that will connect Bladensburg’s Waterfront Park to the Maryland/District line and to the District’s Anacostia Trail system.

The state and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission are partners in the project, known as Maryland Trails: A Greener Way to Go.

“This important trail segment will provide the citizens of Prince George’s County with a vital transportation option as well as enhanced recreational and leisure opportunities,” said Samuel J. Parker Jr., vice chairman of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.

The Maryland Department of Transportation’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program, which funds projects to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality, is paying for the $1.3 million project.
