Construction progressing along the Jones Falls Trail
Work on the long delayed $8.5 million Phase V of the Jones Falls Trail in Baltimore is currently underway. The section will extend the trail north from Clyburn to the Mt. Washington light rail station, crossing a 400-foot-long bridge built with steel arches, support beams and cable wires over Northern Parkway along the way. This new 4.25 mile long section will also serve as part of the East Coast Greenway.
Someday the trail will connect to the Gwynn Falls Trail, BWI Trail and the B&A trail. While the Jones Falls Trail has its north terminus at the light rail station, the bike-friendly train connects to Hunt Valley, where the Torrey Brown trail commences about a mile from the station. That portion of the ECG goes to York, Pa. and beyond as the Heritage Rail Trail.
