Bikemore has been working with the Baltimore City Department of Transportation to improve the design of Charles Street from 29th Street to University Parkway.
The old striping plan removed parking for several lanes of rush hour traffic and included a floating bike lane.
The improved plan provides one lane of vehicular travel, a buffered bike lane, and a lane of full-time parking. This will further calm traffic in a corridor used by many who walk, and will provide a safe bicycle facility as recommended by the recently adopted Bike Master Plan and Homewood Community Partners Initiative.
We anticipate some opposition from individuals who prioritize vehicular travel speeds over the safety of all road users, so please come out to the Community Meeting and support this safer plan for Charles Street.
