State Grant will Fund Bikeway Improvements near UMBC

As part of the Maryland Bikeways Program, Gov. Martin O’Malley announced a $79,600 grant to fund improvements in the bicycle system near University of Maryland, Baltimore County. The grant will provide increased signage, bike lanes and shared road arrows in the southwest part of the county, providing a safer environment for residents to use cycling as a greener form of transportation.

“To build a modern transportation system that supports all Marylanders, we must seek a balanced approached and invest in alternative forms of travel like bicycling,” O’Malley said in the release. ”These grants will help local jurisdictions enhance their bicycle networks, which encourage healthy lifestyles and play a role in improving our air quality, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and addressing climate change in Maryland.”
