At this week’s meeting, the Council will consider approving the continuation of the safety barrier on the east side of Baltimore Avenue from to Hartwick in Downtown College Park. The installation of the fence-style barrier along the curb for the half block to Hartwick will provide a safer environment and lower the probability of a pedestrian accident.

The design of the safety barrier is already utilized in the Downtown streetscape as a safety barrier on the southeast corner of Baltimore Avenue and Knox running south on Baltimore Avenue for approximately 200 feet.

The cost for this extension project is approximately $47,000. Funding will come from $40K in CIP Departmental Capital, $7000 Facility Reserve
