The Transportation Planning Division works strategically to rebuild, maintain and expand the city’s multi-modal transportation network into one that addresses the transportation needs of residents, commuters, and visitors; supports economic development; incorporates sustainability goals; and realizes the vision of growing Baltimore’s neighborhoods.

    • What: Primary projects will include working in partnership with the federally-mandated ADA self-evaluation for pedestrian facilities. Interns will utilize desktop imagery and field inventories to collect data on the City’s approximately 450 miles of sidewalk and 10,000 intersections in Transportation Sector 1, and identify locations where physical barriers to accessibility exist in the public right-of-way. Desktop imagery may consist of Google Earth, Google Maps, Pictometry Online, or some other approved image-based software. The interns will also do field verifications. Upon completion of data collection, the interns will transfer the data into an approved GIS format.
