The new line, which will serve Howard County, will be 5,500 feet long. The pipe has been manufactured; construction will begin in August and the project should be finished in about two years.

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 August and the work should start shortly thereafter. The project, which includes some stream restoration, is expected to cost $300,000.
