Concept Design for the MBT's Takoma, D.C. Section

On December 7, 2021, DDOT hosted a virtual meeting to discuss the concept designs for the MBT section that will run from Blair Rd NW to Piney Branch Rd NW, via downtown Takoma. Review the presentation slidesvideo recording, and transcribed chat from that meeting.
