“In Spring 2018, a much-needed sidewalk between Albion Road and Riverdale Park Station opened. This was a true collaborative effort between the City-University Partnership, the City of College Park, Prince George’s County (including CM Glaros and Executive Baker’s office), WMATA, Riverdale Park Station, and the State – particularly the 21st and 22nd District Delegations (Senators Rosapepe and Pinsky, and Delegates Barnes, Frush, Peña-Melnyk, Gaines, Healy, and Washington).
The Partnership was awarded a $350,000 state bond bill to increase pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure between College Park and Riverdale Park Station. Working with the City, County, and property owner, construction began in early December, with completion expected in winter/spring 2018. This work included the completion of a pervious, ADA-compliant sidewalk and lighting across WMATA land along Baltimore Avenue. This one block stretch lacked sidewalk and because of topography, it was dangerous, forcing pedestrians into the busy road.”
