The goals of the Charles Street Reconstruction Project are to create more balanced traffic patterns, increase pedestrian and bicycle safety, upgrade aging infrastructure, improve signage, support business revitalization, and enhance the character and beauty of the area. The project area is on Charles Street (a designated National Scenic Byway) from 25th Street to University Parkway. This is a $28 million project led by the Baltimore City Department of Transportation, using federal and local funds and a contribution by the Johns Hopkins University.


Traffic and Construction Updates

(For additional information and project updates, please check the "Traffic and Construction Updates" tab to the left of this page.)

The intersection of Greenway and 34th Street will re-open the week of 6/23/2014 weather permitting. Additional work will occur over the coming weeks that will not require a full closure of the intersection. Due to the re-opening of the intersection, the temporary detour allowing access to 34th Street from Charles and 33rd will be removed. Vehicular traffic wishing to access 34th Street will travel south on Greenway from University Parkway and will be able to turn right on 34th Street to access Charles Street and University Parkway or turn left on 34th Street toward St. Paul Street. Parking will be allowed on Charles st from Greenway to University. The parking lane will have the appropriate markings.

Additionally, in early July contractors will begin work on the existing service lane on the east side of Charles Street beginning at University Parkway working south to 29th street. Parking and travel lanes for northbound local traffic will be shifted to the newly paved sections of the roadway when work begins in this area.
