Board of Estimates approves emergency funding to repair Baltimore's 26th Street

BALTIMORE - The Maryland Board of Estimates approved about $12 million in emergency funding to repair at least part of Baltimore’s collapsed 26th Street.

The block between North Charles and St. Paul’s streets collapsed onto CSX railway tracks on April 30. About a dozen cars parked along 26th Street tumbled onto the tracks as the road gave way. About 31 residents were displaced. 

The Department of Transportation secured the $11,986,560.88 emergency funding, which will pay for emergency repairs to 26th Street’s retaining wall and “associated infrastructure.” 

The collapse damaged the railroad, roadway, sidewalk, curbs, water main, wastewater line and gas line.
