Paint Branch Trail Flooding Issues

The trail underpass at US Route 1, near the University of Maryland, floods frequently and leaves the trail muddy and covered with debris. The underpass below the CSX railroad and Metrorail overpasses near Lake Artemesia, also floods frequently. Department of Parks and Recreation is aware of these problem areas. Department of Parks and Recreation is working with local partners and consultants to seek short-term and long-term solutions at these locations. Each location has numerous government agencies/entities with jurisdiction, making matters extremely complicated.
