The Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements project is made possible through a $110,000 Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) Community Legacy grant.
The plan is based on the March 2008 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan developed by the City’s Bike and Pedestrian Safety Committee.
The Committees' recommendations focus on creating a bicycle and pedestrian network connecting the City’s residential and commercial corridors.
In Fall of 2012, the City began installing bicycle racks at parks, schools, public buildings and within commercial corridors.
In Spring 2013, the focus shifts to creating an on-street network of bicycle lanes and pathways. Effective way-finding signage will guide visitors.
The engineering plans are complete and are detailed in each of the four plans below.
Route A – 40th Avenue & 41st Avenue Route B – Nicholson Street Route C – Hamilton Street & Gallatin Street Route D – Gallatin Street and Farragut Street
