Through a bikeways grant from the Maryland Department of Transportation, the Baltimore Department of Transportation is performing a feasibility study for bicycle access along the Waterfront Promenade. Some sections of the promenade are already open to biking, but most sections are closed. The Inner Harbor allows biking during certain hours, but often acts as a detour when construction or auto racing takes place along Pratt Street.
As part of the study, consultants for the Department of Transportation will document current bicycle and pedestrian traffic levels and evaluate the physical constraints of the promenade. A community survey is also available to help gauge public use of the promenade.
The study will conclude this fall with recommendations for bicycle access along the promenade from Canton to Harborview.
