A $10 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation will pay for a 4-mile extension of the trail that will connect 16 waterfront communities, including Nationals Park, RFK Stadium, the Navy Yard and the National Arboretum.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) says the extension will also link dozens of suburban and urban trails in the District and Maryland, helping spur economic development in the area.

The project will also include measures to prevent polluted runoff from entering the Anacostia River as well as the construction of five bridges.
