$10M Grant To Fund Anacostia Riverwalk Extension

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Anacostia Riverwalk Trail is growing and the planned extension will connect many of Washington’s favorite locations.

A $10 million grant from the Department of Transportation will fund a four-mile extension that will connect 16 waterfront communities, including Nationals Park, RFK Stadium, the Navy Yard and the National Arboretum.

Sen. Ben Cardin says the extension will also link dozens of suburban and urban trails in the district and Maryland, helping spur economic development in the area.

The project will also include measures to prevent polluted runoff from entering the Anacostia River and the construction of five bridges.
