Description

The project provides for the planning of the of 3.5 mile Life Sciences Center Loop Trail, a 12 to10-foot wide shared use path that is a central feature of the Life Sciences Center (LSC) area of the Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan. The Life Sciences Center Loop Trail is a critical staging element to increasing the non-auto driver mode share (NADMS) prior to the expansion of stage 2 of the master plan's development. The shared use path will widen existing sidewalks along certain existing or planned streets in the Life Science Center (Omega Drive, Medical Center Drive, Johns Hopkins Drive, Belward Campus Drive, Decoverly Drive) as well as new roadways through the Public Safety Training Academy (PSTA) property and Crown Farm. The planning and design will create a trail design that is able to respond to varying right-of-way widths and other local conditions while providing a trail system that is recognizable and will attract walkers, runners and bicycle riders and will contribute to the LSC's sense of place. The design will enable both private developers and the county to build their respective pieces of the LSC loop in a consistent manner.
