The Jones Falls Valley has always been an important transportation corridor for Baltimore and beyond.  The Jones Falls River was covered and channelized over a century ago to end flooding, create developable land and to create a new roadway – the Fallsway.  Since then, the valley witnessed the proliferation of highway building, serving over 100,000 vehicles a day.

Should Baltimore ponder a new approach to this corridor from Chase Street to Fayette Street; one that restores the Jones Falls and provides an urban boulevard, better stitching the urban fabric together?  What about the evolution of city life under the elevated section?  What is the fiscally responsible option?

 

Ponder the possibilities with YPT – BaltimoreJFX Mkt 016

Join us as we invite a knowledgeable panel todiscuss future possibilities for this corridor.  Whether your interest is purely transportation or you’re just curious about all things Baltimore, this topic touches on all aspects of life.  Continue the discussion at World of Beer, space is reserved for YPT – Baltimore after the Speaker’s Panel.
