Coming Soon? A Bike Boulevard for Covington Street in Federal Hill and Riverside


By Ethan McLeod, Baltimore Fishbowl

Baltimore’s Board of Estimates will vote tomorrow on whether to disburse more than $91,000 in state grants for a new “bicycle boulevard” along Covington Street in Federal Hill and Riverside.

The boulevard would run a half-mile, south from Key Highway to E. Fort Avenue, and include new street markings, flex posts, bike-friendly storm drains, signage and “improved crossings,” among other pieces, according to the board’s agenda. The $91,350 in funding would come from the state Department of Transportation’s Maryland Bikeways Program. A state document shows the money was set aside last fiscal year.

A bicycle boulevard includes signage, pavement markings and speed- and volume- management measures for traffic “to discourage through trips by motor vehicles and create safe, convenient bicycle crossings of busy arterial streets,” according to the National Association of City Transportation Officials.
