Gwynns Falls Parkway Bicycle Lane

124 Signatures Goal: 250

Commuting via bicycle in Baltimore is fast becoming popular, accessible, and rewarding with new city-wide strides to accommodate cyclists with safe bicycle-only lanes. Unfortunately, those living west of Druid Hill Park in the neighborhoods of Reservoir Hill, Mondawmin, Ashburton, Franklintown, Windsor Hills, et cetera have been largely left out of the new bike lanes. Regardless of the unaccommodating infrastructure, cycling remains popular, especially in parks. Leakin Park and the Gwynns Falls Trail are both regular routes for enthusiasts and are frequented by cyclists from all over the city. For the most part, these cyclists are forced to rack their bikes and travel via automobile. This petition is to propose a bike lane, running the length of Gwynns Falls Parkway, from Auchentrolly Terrace at Druid Hill Park to the Gwynns Falls Trail Head on Windsor Mill Road. The lane would be approximately 1.5 miles long and could easily be marked on the preexisting street with simple modifications to right of ways and automobile parking designations. The lane could also be constructed using the ample space provided by the green median that runs the entire length of the Parkway. The new bike lane would serve many West Baltimore neighborhoods and allow for eco-friendly, affordable, and safe new commuting options for a wide-range of Baltimore residents. The bike lanes would also offer easy access for all Baltimore residents to the newly renovated Mondawmin Mall, new Coppin State University Sports Complex and Campus, Gwynns Falls Trail Head, Leakin Park, and more. The route would also be easily accessible to and from the new Jones Falls Trail and Druid Hill Park system.
