The rehabilitation of Central Avenue began with Phase I in the summer of 2012 with storm drain reconstruction and roadway construction and beautification from Madison Street to Baltimore Street. Phase I was complete in summer of 2015.
The Central Avenue Streetscape (Phase II) and Harbor Point Connector Bridge Project continues the streetscape rehabilitation along Central Avenue from Baltimore Street to Lancaster Street and includes the construction of a bridge that will extend Central Avenue to Harbor Point, a 27-acre mixed-use development located on the waterfront west of Fells Point and just south and east of the growing Harbor East neighborhood.
Construction on the Harbor Point Connector Bridge will begin early 2017, with an anticipated 15-month project schedule. Phase II of the Central Avenue rehabilitation, from Baltimore Street to Lancaster Street, is expected to begin 2017.
