On Nov. 25, 2020 MDOT SHA awarded Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks a $2.2M grant for construction of South Shore Trail Phase 2 (Bonheur Ave to Sappington Station Rd) and $20K to build out the enhanced “Caraker Plaza on the B&A Trail” behind The Big Bean in Severna Park. The South Shore Trail will eventually connect Annapolis and Odenton and is a critical link in our envisioned Anne Arundel Trail Network. The gathering area on the B&A Trail will be named in memory of Tom Caraker, known as the “Mayor of the B&A Trail”. The Caraker grant leverages $5K raised by BikeAAA and Friends of Anne Arundel County Trails. All this is the result of close collaboration among county and city departments, BikeAAA, the county Bike Commission, state and regional agencies and organizations. We are grateful for these many partners and progress on our network of bikeways. You can help each time you see a call for public input.
