San Martin Drive

San Martin Drive is a scenic tree-lined road that winds around the back of the university’s Homewood campus in north Baltimore. Lacking complete pedestrian facilities, JHU is embarking on a donor-funded project to add missing pedestrian paths, including a 345' bridge. In addition, pedestrian lighting will be added, existing sidewalks and paths will be improved and new campus entrances will be built at the intersections of San Martin Drive & University Parkway and Remington Avenue & Wyman Park Drive.
