Welcome to the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT) Fort Totten website. Here is where you will find important information about the project. The MBT extension between John McCormack Drive NE and 1st Place NE is the next major milestone toward the completion of the planned eight-mile trail between Silver Spring, Maryland and Union Station (District of Columbia). This portion of the trail will facilitate local access between the Fort Totten Metro, Catholic University and the surrounding community. The project start was August 2018 and anticipated project completion is May 2020, weather permitting.
