Sidewalks for Sulphur Spring and Johnnycake

Baltimore County is installing sidewalks along the south side of Sulphur Spring Road this spring, between the Arbutus Library and Shelbourne Road. The long-awaited pedestrian improvement, a safety enhancement for Arbutus, will be 1,700 feet in length and cost $300,000. Sidewalks are also on schedule for Johnnycake Road. Construction should be completed before the end of summer.

Water Main to Serve Howard County

Contractors will begin replacing a 36-inch diameter water main running from the railroad tracks near Clark Boulevard, down to South Street and then through the Patapsco State Park. The new line, which will serve Howard County, will be 5,500 feet long. The pipe has been manufactured; construction will begin in June and the project should be finished in about two years.

Traffic Calming on St. Agnes Lane and Malbrook Road

Public Works traffic engineers submitted plans to residents on St. Agnes Lane for traffic calming measures in winter 2012. The plans, which include three brick-topped speed humps, were reviewed and approved by residents in March. Construction is scheduled for June. In addition, the County intends to install a small traffic circle at the intersection of Westowne Road and Malbrook Road, near the City line. Construction is also planned for the spring.

Water Transmission Line for Rolling Road Area

Baltimore County is constructing a new water main to serve the Rolling Road Water Tank, near Windsor Mill Road. Two miles of new, 24-inch diameter line will be installed in Powers Lane, Lincoln Woods Drive, Johnnycake Road and Fairbrook Road to supplement the existing line and to “build redundancy for pressure and flow into the system,” according to engineers from the Department of Public Works. The project, using bar-wrapped concrete cylinder pipe to facilitate repairs in the distant future, began in early July 2012. It is presently 65 percent complete and should be finished in June. Cost is $3 million.

Bridge Repairs on Valley Road

The Department of Public Works plans to repair two bridges on Valley Road in Catonsville: bridges B-0300 and B-0310, near Rolling Road. Work was expected to begin in October 2012, but was delayed because of regulatory issues. Valley Road is now expected to be closed in June and the work should start shortly thereafter. The project, which includes some stream restoration, is expected to cost $300,000.
