Dear Community Member: 

You are cordially invited to the Purple Line Project’s Neighborhood Meeting for the proposed Connecticut Avenue/Chevy Chase Lake Station and the surrounding area. The proposed Connecticut Avenue/Chevy Chase Lake Station would be located just east of Connecticut Avenue near the interim Georgetown Branch Trail. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at Bethesda Chevy Chase High School, located at 4301 East-West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814, from 7:00 pm – 9:00pm.

 At this meeting the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) will present an overview of the current plans for the proposed Connecticut Avenue/Chevy Chase Lake Station, explain what light rail stations are like and lead detailed discussions about station issues such as community access. The Purple Line Study team will present this information, but our hope is to have an informal setting that will allow for a back-and-forth dialogue about the station and the surrounding area. 

Your input and involvement is very important to us and I hope that you will be able to attend this meeting. We look forward to continuing to work with your community throughout the planning and design process. Thank you for your interest and continued involvement in this process. Please contact me at 410-767-3694 or at

mmadden@mta.maryland.gov, if you have any questions regarding the Purple Line or this request.
