Sagamore Development has begun construction of a bike path through Port Covington “connecting South Baltimore, City Garage and West Covington Park to points east of Hanover and eventually to Key Highway.” And it’s going to glow.

As reported in, Caroline Paff, speaking on behalf of Sagamore Development announced that the project will employ “an innovative path material” designed to “absorb sunlight during the day and emit a glow at night.” The first phase of development will be a test of the substance.

It won’t be the world’s first glow-in-the-dark bike path. According to ABC News, that distinction belongs to the artist-designed Van Gogh-Roosegaarde Bicycle Path in the Netherlands. It was inspired by Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” and is spectacular.
