Phase I of the rehabilitation of Central Avenue began in the summer of 2012 and included storm drain reconstruction and roadway construction and beautification from Madison Street to Baltimore Street. Phase I was complete in summer of 2015.
Phase II of the Central Avenue Project continues the streetscape rehabilitation along Central Avenue from Baltimore Street to Lancaster Street. Work also includes construction of the Harbor Point Connector Bridge which 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 of the bridge began in January 2017, with an anticipated 15-month project schedule.
Stage 1 of this phase will begin in May 2017, with work occurring between Lancaster Street to the southern portion of Aliceanna Street. Stage 2 will begin in late 2017 and includes work from Aliceanna Street to Baltimore Street.
The streetscape improvements and the new connector bridge will bring many benefits to this growing and active neighborhood and commercial district including improved safety, roadway capacity, accessibility, mobility and aesthetic appeal.
