Druid Park Lake Drive (DPLD) is under construction and Baltimore City Department of Transportation wants the community's feedback on which out of three designs they this is best. The deadline for comments has been extended until January 17, 2022.

There are three preliminary concepts for DPLD that were presented at a meeting in October. Residents are encouraged to view the presentation from the meeting to see the preliminary concepts and complete the community feedback form.

The three preliminary design concepts that have been proposed for Druid Park Lake Drive:

The first concept design calls for a 12’ sidewalk adjacent to residences, an 8’ green buffer, a 12’ two-way bicycle lane, another 8’ green buffer, a twenty-foot two-way travel lane for automobiles (one lane in each direction), another 8’ green buffer, and a 15’ shared use path adjacent to Druid Hill Park.

The second concept design calls for a 12’ sidewalk adjacent to residences, an 8’ green buffer, a 12’ two-way bicycle lane, another 8’ green buffer, a forty-foot two-way travel lane for automobiles (2 lanes in each direction), another 8’ green buffer, and a 15’ shared use path adjacent to Druid Hill Park.

Finally, the hybrid concept design calls for a 12’ sidewalk adjacent to residences, an 8’ green buffer, a 7’ parallel parking lane, a 10’ eastbound shared lane (a combination of automobiles and bicycles), a 6’ westbound bikes only lane, another 8’ green buffer, a 10’ eastbound travel lane for automobiles, a variable width green buffer (the median), two ten-foot westbound travel lanes for automobiles, an 8’ green buffer, and finally a 15’ wide shared use path adjacent to Druid Hill Park.

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation's concept design will be from the I-83 off ramp to the second entrance of Greenspring Ave and will aim to calm traffic and improve the corridors safety and accessibility.

This project is nearing the end of the study phase and is not currently funded for design advancement.
