    The Airport Authority is looking at road and parking changes at DCA

    This will likely impact the use of the MVT. The link below gets you to the draft environmental assessment for the proposed road and parking changes at DCA:


    Public comments are due by August 28th at 5pm.

    The Airports Authority will host a public workshop at the Historic Main Terminal adjacent to Terminal 1 at DCA from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on August 15, 2023, to provide information on the Draft EA, and to solicit comments from the public.

    A virtual public workshop can be attended from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm on August 15, 2023. Details in the link.


    The proposal calls for modifying the trail at the south ramp

    The south onramp onto northbound GWMP near the Airport Access Road (SR-233) bridge would be
    widened to provide additional merging distance. This may require a minor shift of the Mount Vernon
    Trail and the Mount Vernon Trail would be widened slightly. A safety barrier may be installed between the
    widened GWMP onramp and the realigned trail. The Mount Vernon Trail crossing of the south GWMP
    onramp would be enhanced with lane markings and signage, including rapid flashing beacons, to improve
    safety for trail users. The potential for a future grade-separated crossing is under consideration. Light
    poles in the vicinity of the onramp would be realigned and replaced in accordance with NPS GWMP
    design standards.


    The only mention of the CC2DCA bridge is in the abbreviations table (based on a word search). It would seem to be prudent to include some discussion of the two projects.
