After years of efforts from neighborhood biking enthusiasts and over a year’s worth of construction, the Metropolitan Branch Trail segment from Franklin Avenue to New York Avenue Bridge finally officially opens tomorrow.
Let’s build a large crowd for the ribbon-cutting ceremony which will include Mayor Fenty leading the crowd down the Trail to the New York Avenue Metro station.

There will be another, perhaps even larger, celebration of the opening of this segment June 5th by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. Details of this will be announced later.
