10-Month Project Affects Abbie Place Area South of Liberty Road and Milford Mill Academy
The Department of Public Works will replace one mile of sewer line in the Milford Mill area starting this month. Utility crews will begin with the replacement of an obsolete line running through Abbie Place (south of Liberty Road and Milford Mill Academy) on or about the last week of July. They will continue through a service drive along Liberty Road and then progress along parts of Washington Avenue and Lynn Haven Drive. The project should take about ten months and be completed by next summer, with crews finishing at the intersection of Lynn Haven Drive and Ripple Road.
During construction, which includes relocating other utility lines in Abbie Place, parts of the route will be intermittently closed to traffic. Some of the work on Liberty Road and Washington Avenue will be done at night. Detours, when required, will be posted.
The Abbie Place Sewer Relief project is part of Baltimore County’s billion-dollar effort to improve the sanitary sewer system. The new line, costing $2.6 million, will increase capacity and should eliminate sanitary sewer overflows, according to County engineers.
Crews Installing Major Water 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.
