The recent growth in bicycling has created a need to develop bikeways and other bicycle support facilities in the Baltimore region. Agencies and jurisdictions within the region initially responded to this need by developing bikeway facilities on an individual basis. However, it soon became apparent that a more coordinated approach was necessary for effective bikeway planning. A regional bikeway study was initiated in September 1975 as part of the region's Unified Transportation Planning Program, and the study facilitated the development of the regional bikeways plan. The plan consists of a system of priority and future routes for Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County and Harford County. The routes are designed to be continous between jurisdictions and to provide a truly regional system. A set of guidelines for bikeway design and construction and recommendations for developing bicycle support facilities are also included.
