The Baltimore City Department of Transportation Director Michelle Pourciau today announced that an official Request for Proposals (RFP) has been issued for the Druid Park Lake Drive Complete Streets design effort. BCDOT now invites multi-disciplinary design and engineering firms to submit proposals to provide a transportation study and design services for complete streets improvements along Druid Park Lake Drive.
Championed by local residents, 7th District Councilman Leon Pinkett, Baltimore City Department of Transportation, and Bikemore, the Big Jump is a temporary, grant-funded project that counteracts decades of highway expansion with a protected space for pedestrians, wheelchair riders, and bicyclists to connect with green space, school, and jobs. Those of us living in West Baltimore certainly need it as for the past seventy years, walking or bicycling to Druid Hill Park has proven prohibitively dangerous.
