In Annapolis today, Governor Hogan announced $16.8M in grants to fund 42 projects with a focus on designing bike lanes, rebuilding trails, and improving multi-modal connectivity.

“‘Over the last year and a half, more and more Marylanders have been walking, riding bikes, and using trails for transportation, recreation, and exercise,’ said Governor Larry Hogan. ‘These grants, made possible through the federal and state programs, are helping us enhance quality of life and provide additional safe bike and pedestrian opportunities’” (Governor Press Release).
