Commuting by car is no fun. (It’s also not particularly good for your health, either.) Fortunately, Baltimore’s cyclists and pedestrians will soon have a more pleasant time navigating the city, thanks to $2 million in grants the city just received.
According to the Sun, the more than $2 million in state funds will go toward improving the city-spanning Jones Falls Trail, and safety improvements in the Inner Harbor. The money will also pay for the creation of several bike lanes: one on Potomac Street, near Patterson Park; another on West Pratt Street, from MLK Boulevard to Light Street; and another on East Pratt Street.
These are just some of the priority projects highlighted in the city’s Bicycle Master Plan, which aims to make the city more bike-friendly.
