Green Spring Station[edit]

The Green Spring Station complex is located at the intersection of Falls and Joppa Roads, near the interchange of I-695 and the Jones Falls Expressway, and is also bordered by Greenspring Valley Road, though the segment of this road that runs through the complex is identified as Station Drive. Seminary Avenue also begins very close to the location.
