The area between Southeast Baltimore and downtown is compact enough to bike around. With skinny streets and a lack of clear space for bicycles, it’s potentially even too compact. But some changes are coming that will provide space for two-wheeled commuters, according to Bikemore.
In a blog post, the bike advocacy organization details plans for a cycle track in Canton, and increased flexibility for the off-street path along the harbor.
The cycle track is coming to Potomac Street in Canton. Running from Patterson Park to Boston St., the new feature will include a bike lane between one of the street’s curbs and parking areas. This is a similar concept to what was recently installed in Roland Park. It’ll even feature bike stop signs. This being Canton, parking loss is a concern. But it’s not anticipated to take away spots for cars.
Down by the water, there’s also space being created on the Promenade. Later this month, signs are expected to be installed to show that the walk which runs from Canton through Fells Point to Inner Harbor is a shared places for bicycles as well as pedestrians.
Among the improvements, the existing bike lane on the Jones Falls Trail is also getting a new paint job.
With a new website for Baltimore’s Bikeshare also being released, it looks like bikes are fitting into the city’s future plans.
