Officials weigh in on rail-trail options for Wisconsin Ave. tunnel


County Councilwoman Nancy Floreen (D-At Large) said the MTA may have made misrepresentations about the trail running along the Purple Line, which she called a “serious misstep.

“This has been sold from the beginning of time as a pedestrian and bicycle trail next to the Purple Line,” Floreen said. “I think we have the ability to make that happen. I really consider this to be a fundamental obligation of the county.”
