DOT: Second round of Slow Streets set to begin on August 10

Posted at 6:44 PM, Aug 07, 2020

BALTIMORE — On Friday, the Baltimore City Department of Transportation announced the continuation of the Slow Street Program, which started on July 27.

The program provides a safe way to calm traffic and reduce traffic volumes and gives residents more space to social distance while moving around outside.

Following the successful launch and installation of 8 miles of Slow Streets Across the City, BCDOT will add an additional 8 miles across the City — totaling our Slow Street program to have more than 16 miles of safe roadway for City residents to use. Once implemented, Baltimore City residents will be able to provide official comments and feedback to support the evaluation of the program.

This is a temporary program based on the public health response; however, the evaluation will provide valuable information that will inform future traffic calming projects.

Beginning on August 10, the second round of slow streets will be implemented in the following locations:
