Johns Hopkins Announces Plan for Making Campus Road Safer

"We want it to be safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers, and even more beautiful for the campus community, our neighbors, and campus visitors," said Daniel G. Ennis, the university's senior vice president for finance and administration.

Johns Hopkins University has unveiled a new design for San Martin Drive, a tree-lined road that winds around the back of JHU's Homewood campus. It will have an improved sidewalk, paths for those on foot, and a pedestrian bridge almost 350 feet long.

"The university is about to make one of the most attractive, most pleasant roadways in the Homewood campus area even better," said Daniel G. Ennis, the university's senior vice president for finance and administration. "We want it to be safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers and even more beautiful for the campus community, our neighbors, and campus visitors."

The road, almost a mile long, is owned by Baltimore City, which is allowing the university to make the changes. The project is expected to begin in late February and last about a year, and it is being paid for by the university, primarily through gifts.

The university's announcement said one of the road's trickiest spots, an "S" curve at the West Gate, will become a three-way stop intersection, which will help drivers see one another and pedestrians.
