Project to restore erosion damage along the Northwest Branch hiker-biker trail

By Andrea Kenner

Here are some photos I took this morning of the work that has already been done to restore the section of the Northwest Branch Trail near the power lines that cross Cool Spring Road.

They laid the big rocks along the curve of the creek and built up the bank beside the part of the trail that had eroded away. It looks like the next step will be to roll out some new asphalt and repave the missing parts of the trail.

Neighborhood cleanup event on Oct. 17

Please join us at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17, for a neighborhood cleanup event! We’ll meet at the Mosley’s home at the corner of 26th Avenue and Cool Spring Road. We’ll be participating as part of the Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation’s Clean Up Green Up Fall 2015 initiative. Volunteer teams will split up to clean sections of our neighborhood. Light refreshments will be served. So come on out, meet your neighbors, and lend a helping hand!
