Press Releases

BALTIMORE, MD (Monday, October 24, 2022) – Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) is developing a concept plan for bicycle and pedestrian improvements along a stretch of US 40 in Harford County. A public comment period on the plan will close on November 27, 2022, and will include a virtual public meeting on November 2 at 6:00 p.m.

The concept plan will examine a five-mile segment of US 40 (Pulaski Highway) between the Aberdeen Train Station in Aberdeen and Erie Street in Havre de Grace, and will provide a foundation for the future development, implementation and maintenance of a shared-use path serving bicycles and pedestrians along the corridor.
