@jemillerbalt Baltimore has always been a car city. We'll drive 5 minutes to get where we're going. Not sure if that's going to change. The bike and scooter people sometimes act like they own the streets, and this can create hazardous situations.

Mount Royal Station is one of my favorite buildings in the city. Opened in 1896, the B&O Railroad ceased passenger operations there in 1961. In the steam age, electric locomotives were coupled to trains while stopped at the station to move them through the Howard Street Tunnel.

Patrons of Artscape may have more trouble finding parking for this year’s festival than in past years because one of the largest parking garages in the area is out of commission.

It’s interesting that during the traditional commuting hours you’ll hear multiple reports per hour on every local radio station about crashes and traffic but, with very few exceptions, not a single update on if Baltimore area transit is running on time.

The Frederick Douglass Tunnel project is expected to be completed around 2032, close to a decade of work. By comparison the B&P Tunnel, which this project will replace, began construction on April 29, 1870 and opened 38 months later on June 29, 1873.

Wes Moore waves when a passing train interrupts his speech in Baltimore. Modernization of the rail tunnel, renamed Frederick Douglass Tunnel, will be finished in about a decade, @iamwesmoore says

This could be Howard Street if the light rail had full signal priority.

I don’t think people outside KW (especially in GTA) appreciate how good Waterloo’s LRT is as a transit line. Trains every 10 minutes. Dedicated right of way + signal priority means that you can set your watch to them. Here’s Grand River Hospital to Central Station in 2 minutes.

Hampden is one of the best walkable neighborhoods in the city and they want to demolish houses for a parking lot. Has anyone thought to approach Hopkins with a plan for shared use of their massive parking garage a few blocks off the Avenue that is empty on evenings and weekends?

Quick look at the new platform at Penn Station. To be quite honest, besides this, there hasn’t been any meaningful progress on any other part of the station as of late.

$1.4 billion extra? That’s almost about a Red Line’s worth of cost overruns.

Folks complaining about the height of this building casting shadows on the rowhouses next door when there is a taller building directly across the street.

Good thing this is moving along but UDAAP thinks 16 stories is “too tall” for the corridor, but doesn’t have issue with a 500-space parking garage adjacent to a major transit corridor.
