An important East Coast Greenway link in Washington, D.C., the Maine Avenue SW Cycle Track and Sidewalk, is poised for official designation at the Alliance’s June Board of Trustees meeting. The cycle track's designation was approved by the organization's Greenway Council in April. 

The half-mile Maine Avenue SW Cycle Track and Sidewalk is a key East Coast Greenway connection in Washington, D.C., as it links the 12.1-mile Anacostia River Trail - and the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge Path - to the 15th Street Cycle Track and the National Mall.

The new cycle track parallels D.C.’s Southwest Waterfront, The Wharf, allowing access to restaurants, shopping, attractions and more. With this addition, a 20-plus mile loop of protected pathways around our nation's capital is nearly complete.
