Montgomery Parks completes lighting project in the Dalecarlia Tunnel portion of the Capital Crescent Trail
Montgomery Parks says pedestrians and cyclists can expect smooth sailing on the Capital Crescent Trail, now that the installation of new lighting inside the Dalecarlia Tunnel is complete and all lanes of the trail have reopened.
The six ceiling-mounted LED lights will increase visibility and safety for users passing through the 400-foot-long tunnel under MacArthur Boulevard. Additionally, the new lights will use half the electricity as the previous lights.
The Capital Crescent Trail is Montgomery Parks most popular trail and follows an abandoned railroad right of way. The trail extends 11 miles from Georgetown, in the District of Columbia, to Silver Spring in Montgomery County, Maryland. Approximately 3.5 miles of the trail are in Montgomery County.
