And from the WABA email earlier today:

The National Park Service, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration and the District Department of Transportation, proposes to rehabilitate a 3.7 mile section of the Rock Creek Park Multi-Use Trail from Broad Branch Road, NW to M Street, including a 3,000 foot segment of the Rose Park Trail, and a spur along Piney Branch Parkway from Beach Drive to Arkansas Avenue.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and other laws, regulations, and policies, an Environmental Assessment and Assessment of Effects will be prepared to analyze the potential impacts of a range of alternatives on the natural, cultural, and human environment.

Public comments will be accepted until February 28 and can be submitted electronically at the National Park Service's Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website:

We encourage the many trail users in the region to attend this public meeting and submit comments supporting the resurfacing, widening, and improvement of the trail.

WABA will finalize its comments following the presentations at this public meeting, and will provide a follow-up Advocacy Alert with an option to submit comments through the WABA Action Center.

Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Open House: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Open Microphone Session: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
