Purple Line Officials Detail Landscaping Plans For LightRail Line In Bethesda Chevy Chase

Planting of trees, shrubs and evergreens planned to spruce up the transit system

The landscaping plans for the Purple Line’s route through Bethesda and Chevy Chase will include native plants selected to be low maintenance and trees to provide shade to passengers and users of the new trail that will run along the line.

Andrea Lake, a landscape architect working with Purple Line Transit Partners, the team of companies building the 16.2-mile light-rail line, said at a Community Advisory Team meeting in Bethesda on Wednesday night that the landscaping will include a mix of large trees, small trees, evergreens, shrubs, grasses and vines.

The advisory team consists of local residents, community association leaders and others who receive regular updates on the project from construction and state officials.

Lake explained where the plants and trees would be planted along the light-rail line’s route from the Bethesda station to Jones Mill Road—the stretch of the light-rail line that encompasses a large portion of the former Georgetown Branch Trail. The line will run from Bethesda to New Carrollton.
