Palisades Trolley Trail & Foundry Trestle Feasibility Study
DDOT is conducting a feasibility study of the former Glen Echo Trolley line from St. Mary’s Place, NW to Galena Place, NW in the Georgetown and Palisades neighborhoods. The study area includes the abandoned Foundry Branch Trestle Bridge in the historic Glover Archbold Park at Canal Road.
The purpose of this feasibility study is to identify critical issues and challenges in developing a multi-use trail for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities on the former Glen Echo Trolley line corridor, an area commonly referred to as the Palisades Trolley Trail.
Please use the map to tell us: where you access the trail; areas of the trail you typically use; issues with accessing the trail from where you live; trail locations where it is difficult to cross the street; areas of the trail that are challenging to use due to poor drainage, narrow right-of-way, or steep grade; or any other existing conditions information you think is important and would like to share with us.
