The City of Baltimore will lead this planning and engagement exercise to determine if and how dedicated bicycle facilities can be added to Wolfe Street and/or Washington Street. To perform this planning, the City and the team will examine existing conditions – understand existing land use, determine existing volumes (pedestrian, bicycle, traffic), and evaluate curbside usage – to gain a thorough understanding of the range of possibilities.
Join the Process
The City will work collaboratively with you and your neighbors, peers, local businesses, and institutions to navigate a planning process aimed at arriving at a consensus solution to provide greater connections through the north/south corridors and to the City of Baltimore Bike Network.
During 2021, you will have four opportunities to join the planning process:
- Winter 2021
You’ll have the opportunity to share your favorite (and least favorite!) things throughout the Wolfe and Washington Streets public right-of-way. You’ll learn about dedicated bicycles facilities and how they benefit communities and you’ll learn more about the goals of the project.
- Late Winter 2021
You’ll provide input and offer suggestions, priorities, and preferences on multiple concepts.
- Fall 2022
You’ll review concepts for Wolfe Street and Washington Street that have been developed using the input that has been provided up to this point and will examine specific concerns, offer suggestions that will improve how you and your neighbors use the corridor.
- Winter 2022-23
Review the summary of findings, hear next steps and the associated timeline for the next phase of engineering and construction.
Check back to this website regularly for specific meeting dates and opportunities and follow the City of Baltimore Department of Transportation social media channels for more information.
The study will conclude with a summary of findings in late 2022, including preliminary plans for one concept – if and when a preferred concept is identified and developed.
