A Canton bike lane that was slated removal, won't be demolished after all.

Bikemore announced Tuesday that the Potomac Street protected bike lane will not be removed. The bike advocacy group and the city have reached a settlement and will be finalizing new plans for Potomac Street.

Once the plans have been finalized, they will be shared publicly. Until then, Bikemore says the bike lane will remain intact as currently constructed. 

"We are pleased to have reached this agreement with the City and are committed to being partners as we work to make Baltimore a safe place to ride a bike," a Bikemore post said.
