More City Roads Added To Baltimore's 'Slow Streets' Program

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Starting Monday, Baltimore City residents will have an extra eight miles of space to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air.

Officials are extending the Slow Streets program, which cuts down on traffic to give people more space to social distance while exercising.

After starting in places like Patterson and Druid Hill parks, the City Department of Transportation asked people to nominate other locations so the program could be expanded.

Among the areas that will be closed down come Monday include Croydon Road from Northern Parkway to St. Albans Way.

Over the next few weeks, an additional 25 miles will be added to Slow Streets.
