The West Baltimore Pedestrian/Bicycle Loop Project is a proposed .75 mile walking and biking trail in the heart of West Baltimore. Based on the public comments we’ve received, here are the latest concepts for the project. Some additions the community requested include:
Federal funding for construction will be requested in 2012. Stay tuned for more updates as this project moves forward. Please click to enlarge images.
DOT is working on a plan to make West Baltimore more green and pedestrian friendly.
The West Baltimore Bike Pedestrian Loop Project is a three-quarter mile loop of recreational park space along the interior of Franklin and Mulberry Streets around the US 40 “Highway to Nowhere”. Though in the early design phases, this plan may also incorporate additional trees and greenery, lighting improvements, community art, community gardens, dog stations, and playgrounds to make the area more safe, vibrant, and comfortable.
Additionally, the loop will connect to a stretch of the Red Line and make the U.S 40 overpasses a more pleasant experience for pedestrians and cyclists.
Check out the concept presentation below to see some graphic renderings of the proposal.
We’re looking for your input so please provide whatever comments you have here. On Tuesday, September 14th there is a Design Workshop happening at Bon Secours Community Center. For details and to RSVP, please visit Socializr.
