Route 40 West, also known as the Golden Mile, represents so much worth celebrating about Frederick. This route houses dozens of local shops, restaurants, and other businesses operated by hardworking Frederick residents who bring a global flair to our Frederick community. A drive along the Golden Mile will show you how much these restaurants, businesses, and neighborhoods have to offer you and your family and the community at large. Not only will it take you into the City of Frederick—it’ll take you to so much more.
Initial plans for a bus, bike, and pedestrian project along Frederick’s Golden Mile are expected to be ready for public review by early next year. The project would build a bus-only lane and a 10-foot shared-use path along the northern edge of the westbound lanes of West Patrick Street, stretching about 1.25 miles from just west of Baughman’s Lane to Waverley Drive.
