EPS at Pikesville Farmers Market

On Tuesday, June 1, from 2 to 6 p.m., Baltimore County Natural Resource Specialists will have a table at the Pikesville Farmers Market at Pomona Square, 1700 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, Maryland 21208. Stop by to find out how you can enter the Name Our Streams contest to name a stream in Pikesville. The Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability (EPS) is excited to discuss anti-litter initiatives being piloted in the Pikesville area to improve the health of the environment and our communities.

Name Our Streams Contest

The Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability is working to protect local streams that lead to the Chesapeake Bay. Help call attention to the importance of healthy streams by naming a local stream in Pikesville, which crosses Church Lane and runs through a new, four-acre County park (currently in the planning stages). Submit your idea by Friday, June 11. The winning name will be announced on Tuesday, July 13. Learn more about the Name Our Streams Contest.

Water Line Extension at Glencliffe Circle and Old Court Road

Baltimore County contractors are extending water service to 12 houses on Glencliffe Circle and Old Court Road. The new line, which will cost about $400,000, will run 1,783 feet. Work began in April and is about 70 percent complete.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Pedestrian Study for Pikesville

Baltimore County hired a consultant last year to perform a desk audit in Pikesville to assess pedestrian conditions and to learn if improvements can and should be made to enhance traffic engineering design for walkers, bicyclists and drivers. The consultant will be reviewing accident histories and the examination will include all facets of traffic control, including signals and crosswalks, taking note of bicycle and pedestrian movements as well. One of the goals of the study, say engineers, is to create a context in which to safely coordinate crosswalks with present and future traffic conditions. The project is temporarily on hold, say engineers, until traffic patterns return to normal and schools reopen completely—probably in the fall.

Water Line on Falls Road

The Department of Public Works and Transportation plans to replace 11,000 feet of water line on Falls Road between the Beltway and the City line. The project will cost approximately $14 million and is scheduled to begin in the fall. The replacement of the line—sections of which are more than 90 years old—will improve the reliability of the system. Much of the construction will be done between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., and ingress and egress will be coordinated with and provided for all property owners.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Water in the Dumbarton Neighborhood, Pikesville

Baltimore County is relining and cleaning more than 16,000 feet of water line under 27 streets in Dumbarton. The project, managed in two phases, is about 70 percent complete and will cost $4.2 million. Work is expected to be completed by the end of summer.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.
