The Baltimore Bike Master Plan was revealed in a meeting February 3, 2015, and it is very comprehensive in terms of trying to make Baltimore City a very bike-friendly city.
Baltimore City has a full time “bike and pedestrian coordinator” who presented the plan. What is in Baltimore City’s Bike Master Plan? (Here is a link to the draft document from Baltimore City.)
– Add 180 miles of new bike lanes and trails by 2028.
– A protected bike track along Maryland Avenue from 29th Street to Pratt Avenue, to be completed by the end of 2015.
– A protected two-way bike track on Mount Royal Avenue and $7 million in street/landscaping improvements.
– “Bike Boulevards” in West Baltimore, apparently meaning roads that put an emphasis on “bike safety.” These roads would include Hollins, West Lexington, West Baltimore, Carrollton, and North Smallwood Streets.
– Bus and Bike Lane improvements on both Pratt and Lombard Streets.
– Additional Bike Parking and Racks.
– Bike Access to the Inner Harbor Waterfront Promenade.
– Implementation of the “Charm City Bikeshare” program by 2016.
Thank you to Baltimore Magazine for their article and breakdown of the details of the Baltimore Bike Master Plan.
