Kamenetz Announces 23 Miles of New Bicycle Routes
Towson, Maryland (October 8, 2013) – Bicycle riders in Baltimore County will have over 23 miles of new bikeways thanks to $229,600 in grants awarded to Baltimore County from the Maryland Department of Transportation Bikeways Program.
"In this era of high gas prices, traffic congestion and a renewed emphasis on physical fitness, designating bike routes really make sense," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "We thank the State for its support of our growing network of trails and bikeways."
New or expanded bicycle routes are planned for Dundalk, Towson, Lansdowne, Baltimore Highlands, Woodlawn, Catonsville and Arbutus.
The improvements are based on current pedestrian and bicycle access plans, and include striped bike lanes, bike route signs, and "share the road" pavement markings. The Baltimore County departments of Planning and Public Works will be meeting with community groups to review and refine each community's improvements before implementation.
