Planning Assistance in Action
The Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) is partnering with the City of Baltimore (City) and the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) on the North Avenue Rising Project. The City and communities making up North Avenue have come together and expressed the shared vision of revitalizing the corridor to its full potential. Already, significant investments in the corridor have been and are being made in redevelopment and quality of life by institutions, NGOs, and private sector parties. The $27.3 million of improvements under North Avenue Rising includes $10 million from the U.S. DOT Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. This funding is supporting the realization of the locally generated vision, and will go towards transportation improvements along the corridor; including dedicated bus lanes, new bike facilities, renovations to the MTA Metro Station, access improvements to the Light Rail Station, improvements to major bus stops, streetscaping, and targeted re-paving..
