On Nov. 15, the mayor and board of aldermen approved a $200,000 grant from the Maryland Department of Transportation to design a shared-use path to connect “in essence, the entire east side of the city with the west,” according to Tim Davis, the city transportation planner.
The project is part of a 25.7-mile path plan dating back to 2001, which outlines seven individual path systems throughout the city. The announcement means that two of those, the Rock Creek Trail and the Carroll Creek Trail, will be linked via a crossing under U.S. 15.
The path will link Rock Creek Park, Baker Park and Waterford Park.
Good news for bikers, runners, and walkers in Frederick!
