The Bryn Mawr School and Gilman School have each agreed to pay $350,000 to Baltimore City to fund traffic-calming and streetscape improvements along Northern Parkway and Roland Avenue, which intersect near the two schools in the Roland Park area.

Under the agreement, announced Wednesday, the schools will maintain the improvements that fall in the public right-of-ways on Northern Parkway between Roland Avenue and Boxhill Lane, and on Roland Avenue between Northern Parkway and Cold Spring Lane.

The improvements will include "roadway resurfacing, median modifications, new curbs, gutters, sidewalks, ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act] compliant pedestrian ramps, street lighting, traffic signals, and landscaping," according to the announcement.

The project, also being supported by the Roland Park Civic League, is expected to be completed in the fall of 2013, the announcement said.
