One-way Traffic Converted to Two-Way?

In response to community requests, the Baltimore City Department of Transportation (DOT) is conducting a study of the St. Paul Street and Calvert Street Corridor from University Parkway to Fayette Street. The study will investigate the impact of converting both streets from one-way traffic flow to two-way traffic flow. Specific impacts to all modes of travel as well as public health and livability within the corridors will be investigated.

Attend an upcoming Community Meeting 10/28 or 10/29 - open this link for details & meeting dates.
