Plan is to Better Connect Neighborhoods to Downtown Towson
More and more people are riding bicycles all around town. The Towson Spokes bicycle improvement project will help connect neighborhood cyclists to the Towson Loop bikeway, which circles the downtown Towson business district. From the Loop, cyclists can access shops, restaurants, County government offices and the Towson Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library.
The Baltimore County Departments of Planning and Public Works are holding an open house meeting to present plans for signing and marking major streets in the Towson area with bicycle improvements. The suggested improvements range from bike route signs to pavement markings and bike lanes.
Residents and business owners are encouraged to attend and provide feedback Thursday, July 16 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Towson Library Meeting Room, 320 York Road, Towson, Maryland 21204.
More information about the project is available at www.baltimorecountymd.gov/bikeproject.
The Baltimore County Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee identified the Towson Spokes project as a priority for implementation, since it supports the existing Towson Loop bikeway. Funding for the Towson Spokes project is provided through a grant from the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Bikeways Program.
