Baltimore County recently installed bike lanes on Seven Courts Drive in Perry Hall. What was once a 4 lane speedway through a residential area with elementary school and senior center, traffic speeds have greatly reduced thanks to a road diet. North of Seven Oaks Elementary, additional roadway space that was once used for illegal curbside passing, is now a bike lane with full time parking (above).
Like any other jurisdiction new to installing bike lanes, Baltimore County also has a minor fix needed. Instead of dropping the bike lane with bikes and cars merging before Joppa Road, this bike lane diverts sharply into the curb.
