$3.8 Million in Awards for Bikeways Projects Announced
The Hogan Administration has announced $3.78 million in fiscal year 2021 grants to support bicycle safety and access improvements for projects across the state. The funds are made possible through the Maryland Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) Kim Lamphier Bikeways Network Program. Founded in 2011, the Bikeways Program provides state transportation funding for planning, design and construction of bicycle infrastructure, including bike lanes and shared-use paths.
Through the Bikeways Program, MDOT offers grant assistance to jurisdictions and key agencies to improve safety, enhance multimodal connections and fill missing links in the state’s bicycle network. Detailed information about each program is available on the MDOT Kim Lamphier Bikeways Network Program website, and the bikeway grants will be highlighted on MDOT’s new WalkCycleMD Twitter and Facebook pages, @WalkCycleMD and facebook.com/WalkCycleMD.
