Riverdale Park Station Bridge Opening June 22nd!

Rejoice, people!  The CSX Bridge connecting Riverdale Park Station (& Whole Foods, Gold's Gym, District Taco, MOD Pizza, Burtons Grill, Starbucks) with the Discovery District in Riverdale Park will open on June 22nd!  These grumpy "road closed" signs will soon be no more!

According to Alan Thompson, Mayor of Riverdale Park: "It is with immense pleasure that I announce the opening date for the new bridge and associated roadway to connect Riverdale Park Station across the CSX tracks to Lafayette Avenue, Rivertech Court, and the Discovery District (formerly known as M Square). The bridge and roadway will have a ribbon cutting next Friday, June 22, at 9:30 am, with the bridge opening to the public at 10:00 am. We've been waiting a long time, and I'm glad it's about to open!"

This free standing abstract sculpture was "fabricated from reclaimed oil barrels...[and] is intended to make visible the impact of air pollution on the environment. Inspired by an International Energy study stating air pollution leads to 6.5 million deaths each year, the artist place black numbers on a stark white background to symbolize these losses."  

Do you know where this cool and thoughtful sculpture is located in Prince George's County? Play along in comments below or head over to Route One Fun's Facebook Page and/or Instagram Page to bid your wager!

Local Music + Tasty Local Craft Beer? Yes, please! (Hyattsville's HyFest is this Saturday!)

Tomato Dodgers all up in this piece! 

If I told you there was a music showcase happening at Hyattsville's Polka Dot Park THIS Saturday featuring four local bands playing some r-n-r, punky reggae, action funk rock, and rootz reggae as well as some tasty local craft beer from Denizens and Calvert Brewing Company, you'd be like, "shawt up!" And I'd be like, "Totes Magoates." HyFest is happening this Saturday, people!
