You have probably noticed the construction activity adjacent to the Rhode Island Avenue Shopping Center and Metropolitan Branch Trail, across the street from the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station. A pedestrian and bicycle bridge is being constructed that will link the metro station to the Metropolitan Branch Trail, over Rhode Island Avenue.
Crews recently completed the foundations and piers that will support the ramp and stairway adjacent to the Metropolitan Branch Trail and CSX railroad tracks. The next step in the construction process is to build the ramp and stairway. This work will continue through January 2014. Please use caution when travelling along the Metropolitan Branch Trail in this area. The project is scheduled to be completed in January 2015.
