From DDOT:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host a public meeting for the Klingle Valley Trail Project in Ward 3 on Thursday, August 20, from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. The project will convert Klingle Road NW between Cortland Place and Porter Street into a pedestrian and bicycle trail using green infrastructure components such as permeable pavement and bioretention ponds. The project will also restore eroded segments of Klingle Creek and rebuild drainage structures along the trail. At this meeting DDOT will review the project timeline, construction phasing, and key design components based on feedback previously gathered from community stakeholders.

Klingle Road NW was closed between Cortland Place NW and Porter Street NW following a severe flood event in 1991. The Klingle Valley Trail will provide safe public access to this section of Rock Creek Park for the first time in 25 years.
