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.)

On or about 4/17/14 a temporary detour of vehicular traffic will be set up for access to 34th Street due to the reconstruction of Greenway and 34th Streets. Vehicles will not be able to access 34th Street from Greenway. To access 34th Street, vehicles traveling on Greenway will be detoured north onto Charles Street to access St. Paul and 33rd Streets. From 33rd Street vehicles will turn right onto Charles to access 34th Street. This detour is temporary and access to 34th Street from Greenway will be reopened once the work is completed. Progress continues and we thank community members for your continued cooperation and patience as these improvements are constructed. We anticipate that the project will be completed Fall 2014.
