Charles Street construction website adds important updates

As announced in The Gazette in May, the Baltimore City Department of Transportation expects to begin in November a major reconstruction of Charles Street near the Homewood campus. The project is slated to last more than two years and will shut down portions of Charles Street throughout that time frame.

To keep the Homewood campus and affiliates along Charles Street informed about the project, JHU has created a website.

The website has been updated recently to include additional FAQs, some of which were submitted by staff and faculty via the website and others that arose from departmental in-house briefings conducted during May.

In addition, the Resources and Updates tab now includes the city’s Charles Street Reconstruction animation, a video-based presentation of existing conditions coupled with the renderings of the completed work, and information about a bike and pedestrian safety study being conducted on and around the Homewood campus this summer.

The website will be updated frequently. Questions about the project may be submitted through the website or directly to
