Hicks-Wilson Road Bridge Closed for Repairs

Baltimore County has closed the Hicks-Wilson Road Bridge (No. B-22) north of Monkton, over Little Falls, for three weeks in order to repair damage from last September’s Tropical Storm Lee. The sixty-foot-long, single-lane steel bridge was built in 1988 and its abutments have shown signs of deterioration – made more acute by the tropical storm. Repairs should be completed by the end of February, say County engineers.

Vernon Road Bridge Replacement

The Department of Public Works is planning a complete replacement of the Vernon Road Bridge (Bridge No. 523 in the County’s bridge inventory). The two-lane bridge, 20 feet wide and 29 feet long, spans the Second Mine Branch. The replacement could begin as early as June and require two to three months. The expected cost is $700,000. A public meeting was held on the proposed work March 24, 2010.

Hess Road Bridge

Harford County’s Department of Public Works held a public input meeting on the replacement plans for the Hess Road Bridge, which links Baltimore and Harford counties, last October. Baltimore County shares the cost of construction, but Harford County’s Department of Public Works has the lead role in planning and execution. Copies of the meeting minutes are available on line through the Harford County, Maryland web site. Construction has not begun, though Harford County engineers are currently running tests on the condition of the abutments.

Phoenix Road Bridge Update

The Phoenix Road Bridge, a City-owned span over Gunpowder Falls and the NCR Trail which was closed for repairs last year, now has an alternating-one-way traffic signal control system which will allow both east and west-bound traffic to use the bridge during the closure. It went live at the end of November.

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. The new 24-inch line, double the diameter of the old line, is expected to cost $5 million and take one to two years to install. The project, say County engineers, is designed “to build redundancy into the system. The County’s contractor, Burgermeister Bell, started the project April, 2010 and should be finished by June or July 2012. The project is about 71 percent finished, say engineers. The State Highway Administration plans to re-surface York Road, between Ridgely and Timonium roads, in the near future.
