A plan in the works for a Towson Bike Beltway in Towson was good news. A plan to expand that beltway is even better news.
The proposed beltway will more than double in size after grant money was awarded recently through the Maryland Bikeways Program. Five extensions from the original loop made possible with the $90,000 grant will add bike lanes, road painting and signage to 4.5 miles of Towson roads in addition to the original 4.2 mile loop currently under construction.
Although “procurement issues” have delayed completion of the original loop, County Councilman David Marks said commitment to the project’s completion is assured.
