WRA Reshapes Harford Road.
Councilman Ryan Dorsey, author of Baltimore’s Complete Streets legislation, obtained a $400,000 grant from the Maryland State Highway Administration to reshape Harford Road through the business district of the City’s Hamilton neighborhood. The Baltimore City Department of Transportation’s (BCDOT’s) goals for the project included improved safety, slower and safer vehicle turning speeds, improved walkability, better accessibility for cyclists, and transit improvements.
Beginning in late January 2019, WRA led the project working alongside subconsultant RJM Engineering, only five months before construction needed to be completed to satisfy grant requirements. We finished the planning and design stage of the project, including three public meetings, in less than three months. An on-call contractor began construction in early May and substantially completed their work in June. The result is a safer, more people-oriented and business-friendly Harford Road.
