Tell DDOT you support a bridge from Ward 7 to the National Arboretum

The District Department of Transportation is planning to construct a pedestrian bridge from Kenilworth Park across the Anacostia River to the National Arboretum.

This bridge will provide residents of Kenilworth, Eastland Gardens, Mayfair, Parkside and other neighborhoods direct access to the National Arboretum, and it will expand the Anacostia River Trail.

DDOT is accepting comments about the bridge through June 21, 2019. The agency needs to hear from residents nearby. Do you support the bridge being built in this location? Click here to submit a comment via Clean Water Action’s website (coming soon).

Do you want to submit a more detailed comment directly? You can send an email to Stacee Hemby  at
