Joppa Road Bridge Closure

Baltimore County closed a small bridge on East Joppa Road over Honeygo Run on January 21 in order to make emergency repairs. The bridge (Bridge B-0545), located between Snyder Lane and Honeygo Boulevard, will remain closed for several months to permit restoration. During the closure, during which activity will be intermittent, traffic will be detoured to Ebenezer Road and Honeygo Boulevard, but access to Honeygo Elementary School will be open. The Joppa Road Bridge, built in the 1920s and widened in the 1940s, is a two-lane span. Its construction is concrete slab; its length is 16 feet.

Water Line Replacement in Towson

Baltimore County is replacing 1,800 feet of old cast-iron water main in Fairmount Avenue between York and Bosley Roads with a new 24-inch diameter line. The work includes the installation of a new valve and is 95 percent complete. The project, which will cost $2.4 million, is expected to be finished in the spring.

Stoneleigh-Anneslie Storm Water Project

Baltimore County earmarked $1 million for the project in 2018. A system was designed in 2019 and the County's contractor began work in February 2020. Work is ongoing and is about 78 percent finished. The storm drain on Wardman Road is finished and completion is expected by fall.
