More trees have been cut down in the Inner Harbor - for bikers and hikers this time, not race car fans.
A contractor removed 13 trees last week on Light Street by the Harborplace pavilion, according to Adrienne Barnes, spokeswoman for the city's Department of Transportation.
They had to go, Barnes said, to make way for the final leg of the Jones Falls trail, which tracks the stream of the same name from Robert E. Lee Park through the city. This leg is to extend from Penn Station down the Fallsway and around Light Street to the Visitor's Center by Harborplace. There, it's to link up with the Gwynns Falls trail which runs up the western side of Baltimore.
