Baltimore gets $2 million to help plan for redevelopment of Highway to Nowhere

February 22, 2023

Baltimore will receive $2 million in federal funds as a next step in planning for the redevelopment of the Highway to Nowhere, a controversial 1.4-mile stretch of roadway that forced the displacement of over 1,000 residents in a predominantly Black community when it was built decades ago. The funds, announced Tuesday by Maryland Congressional members, were requested by the city last fall for a planning study that will help advance redevelopment plans and “set in motion the next steps to finally deliver on those promises made,” according to its proposal. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Reconnecting Communities Pilot Program, which was established by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and is dedicated to reconnecting communities cut off from opportunities due to transportation infrastructure decisions, according to the department.
