The Baltimore Red Line is a proposed 14.1-mile east-west transit line connecting Woodlawn in Baltimore County, through downtown, to the Johns Hopkins Medical Center Campus. The goal of the project is to provide enhanced mobility and connecting service to Baltimore’s existing local and regional bus and rail transit systems.
Part of the Program Management Consultant Team, Floura Teeter is establishing landscape design criteria, reviewing GEC Natural Resources Construction Documents, and reviewing construction drawings for conformance with design criteria. Floura Teeter senior staff also serves as the Resident Engineer for three environmental construction packages, ensuring that the contract is administered and documented in accordance with the MTA’s requirements.
Floura Teeter also coordinated the Art in Transit Program, which consisted of a two-phased process to solicit, jury, and select artists for 18 different locations. Phase I involved developing the major themes for the Program and identifying opportunities for each station along the alignment. During Phase II, over 500 artists responded to the Call for Submissions, and Floura Teeter coordinated the review and selection of the finalists. Proposed art would be integrated into the seating, lighting, wayfinding components, and the stations themselves.
The Red Line was expected to be operational by 2022, but the project was recently shelved.
