Baltimore Red Line Reforestation & Vegetation Control

The Baltimore Red Line was a proposed 14.1-mile east-west transit line connecting Woodlawn in Baltimore County, through downtown, to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Campus. The project was 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 established landscape design criteria, reviewed GEC Natural Resources Construction Documents, and reviewed construction drawings for conformance with design criteria. Floura Teeter senior staff was the designated Resident Engineer for three environmental construction packages.

Floura Teeter also coordinated the Art in Transit Program to solicit, jury, and select artists for 18 different locations. Tasks included:

  • developing the major themes for the Program.
  • identifying opportunities for each station.
  • review and selection of the finalists (from over 500 artists).

The Red Line was expected to be operational by 2022, but the project was terminated by the Governor.
