The Baltimore Department of Transportation will begin developing a “bike boulevard” along Guilford Avenue later this summer.
Nate Evans, a bike pedestrian planner with the department, briefed Charles Village Civic Association members about the project at a meeting Wednesday night.
“You’re not going to see much difference on Guilford except more bike traffic,” Evans said.
The planned bike boulevard will extend south to Mount Royal.
Cyclist will still share the roadway with cars and trucks.
Construction of the boulevard is expected to take four months.
Planned improvements include:
- Building bike-friendly traffic humps
- Constructing mini traffic circles where Guilford Avenue intersects with 32nd, 24th and 22nd streets
- Adding curb extensions at the intersection of Guilford and North avenues.
- Painting sections along 33rd Street green to show where cyclists should ride
