Regional Transportion Issue
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz issued the following statement in reaction to Maryland Secretary of Transportation Rahn’s meeting with Baltimore lawmakers regarding regional transportation issues this morning:
“It is clear that the administration is not interested in taking a comprehensive look at 21st century transit options for the Baltimore region. Instead, they have redistributed virtually all mass transit funding to the rural counties and forfeited significant federal funds. Without a real fiscal commitment, thousands of commuters will remain stuck in traffic and hard- working citizens will be left without access to meaningful employment. The administration should have had a plan in place before torpedoing the Red Line.”

Beginning this evening, Towsontown Boulevard between York Road and Virginia Avenue will be closed for one week while utility crews install a major water line through Towson. The closures will be between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
East-bound traffic will be detoured onto York Road, Chesapeake Avenue, and Virginia Avenue. West-bound traffic will be detoured to Virginia Avenue, Pennsylvania Avenue and York.
