STONY RUN WALKING PATH UPATE
Improvements to the Stony Run walking path are moving along, but they are progressing very slowly. The engineering and landscape plans for the two Linkwood Road bridges have been completed and were submitted to the Maryland Department of the Environment several weeks ago for review and permits. If the plans satisfy environmental requirements, the project will go out to bid. Although we had hoped to begin construction this fall, it looks like we won’t be seeing any bridgework until spring 2015.
One of the goals of the Stony Run path plan has been to have a continuous path from Roland Park Public School on the north to where the path meets the Jones Falls Trail near 29th Street. In addition to the bridges project in Tuscany- Canterbury, several small pieces of land have already been purchased from property owners in the Wyndhurst to Cold Spring section of the path. There are also plans to continue the path along Wyman Park Drive along the side of the Boy Scouts of America property.
STONY RUN WALKING PATH LAUNCHED IN SEPTEMBER 11
The Friends of Stony Run was launched in September, 2011 by a group of volunteers from Tuscany-Canterbury, Charles Village and Remington. The aim is to create a walking path along the former right of way of the Ma and Pa Railroad that used to run from Baltimore to York, PA. The path along the Stony Run stream, from Cold Spring Lane to the point where the stream joins the Jones Falls nearby the Steiff Silver Factory, will be the main focus. Volunteers are encouraged to join the group and take part in activities sponsored by the Friends of Stony Run. www.stonyrun.org
