Gore[s] Mill Road Bridges

The concrete bridges, which span Little Falls just south of the Morris Meadows Recreation Farm, were constructed more than eighty years ago and three of the four have reached the end of their useful life, according to County structural engineers. One can be rehabilitated. Bridges B-0136, B-0138 and B-0346 are scheduled for replacement and new structures are currently being designed. Construction is anticipated for the summer 2015. Bridge B-0137 – immediately adjacent to Bridge B-0138 – will be widened for traffic safety. Both Federal and County funds are being used on this $2 million project.

New Water Pipe for York Road

Baltimore County’s contractors are replacing 9,500 feet of old water line in York Road, between Ridgely and Padonia Roads. The new 24-inch line, double the diameter of the old line, is expected to cost $5 million and take one to three years to install. The project, according to County engineers, is designed “to build redundancy into the system." The County’s contractor, Burgermeister Bell, started the project in April 2010 and should be finished by April next year. The project is 96 percent complete.
