Anne Arundel County & BikeAAA Announce Bicycle Trail Infrastructure Improvement
Annapolis, MD (October 22, 2015) Anne Arundel County and Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (“BikeAAA”) today announced another step to improving the quality of county bike trails with the installation of signs for the interstate bicycle trail East Coast Greenway on county roads.
“We are committed to improving the quality of life here in Anne Arundel County,” said County Executive Steve Schuh. “These trail signs crucial provide direction for cyclists and help ensure they can travel safely throughout our county.”
The Greenway is a 2,900 mile bicycle route from Maine to Key West that seeks to connect towns using as much off-road routing as possible.
In Anne Arundel, that includes the BWI Loop Trail, B&A Trail and Poplar Trail. The Greenway signs have been installed on county roads and the County is working towards to coordinate the installation of more signage on trails and roads controlled by other jurisdiction. These signs make it easier for cyclists to stay on route and are a visual cue to drivers to expect cyclists on road.
