The City of Baltimore will lead this planning and concept development process and will work closely with area partners such as MDOT, MTA, Pimlico Community Development Authority, City Council, local businesses, adjacent schools, and local community organizations to ensure the final concept represents.
The City and its partners will review the current road conditions as well as existing and planned projects for the area before beginning the process of concept development and refinement. After several rounds of input from the public and stakeholders, the City will generate the preliminary design for the Wabash Avenue Separated Bike Lane.
The City will work collaboratively with you and your neighbors, peers, local businesses, and institutions to navigate a planning process aimed at creating the best version of a separated bike lane on Wabash Avenue. Public feedback is essential to this process and while input is always welcome throughout this process using the Contact page, there will also be two public engagement events:
- Winter 2023
During this event, the City and its partners want to hear about how you and your neighbors currently use the corridor:
• Do you live or work nearby?
• Do you go to school nearby?
• Where do you like to go for shopping and entertainment?
• Do you take the Metro or the bus in the area?
Additionally, three potential alternative alignments for a separated bike lane on Wabash Avenue will be presented and you will have the opportunity to provide feedback on each.
- Spring 2023
The City will synthesize the feedback received in the first public engagement event to develop a singular separated bike lane concept and return to the you and your fellow citizens to gather your thoughts once again:
• What works about the concept?
• What doesn’t work?
• What would you like to see in the final design?
Check back to this website regularly and follow the City of Baltimore Department of Transportation social media channels for more information, opportunities, and meeting dates.
The study will conclude with a summary of findings in the summer of 2023, including preliminary plans for the separated bike lane. The City will use these plans to seek funding for final design and construction of the proposed facilities. The work isn’t done – this study will yield preliminary plans; there will be opportunities for your voice to be heard during the final design process, which is expected in late 2023. We look forward to working with you on this exciting project!
