Baltimore County Master Plan 2030

Baltimore County’s Master Plan 2030 provides the vision and strategies for growth over the next 10 years into a modern, 21st century county. We invite you to be a visionary. Visit the Master Plan website and join to stay informed and find out how you can bring your ideas to the table about growth, development and conservation.

Over the summer months, Department of Planning staff will be meeting with communities to inform them about the plan and ask for input about how they see their community, and the County, growing in the next 10 years. Please be sure to check the calendar on the Master Plan website to check for meetings in your area.

Sewer Relining Project in Carney, Perry Hall and Towson

The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT) began an extensive sewer relining project in Carney, Perry Hall and Towson in May. It’s now five percent complete. More than 12 miles of sanitary sewer pipe will be relined during the next year and a half. The project will cost about $5.8 million. Most of the work will be below ground with minimal impact to communities. However, with any project of this scale, there may be some traffic or parking issues, and occasional chemical odors. DPWT staff will issue periodic updates.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

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. Reopening is expected in October, say engineers.

Information: Email the Department of Public Works and Transportation at engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Towson Improvements

In cooperation with the Towson Row development, the Department of Public Works and Transportation is improving sidewalks on Chesapeake Avenue between Washington Avenue and York Road. The majority of construction on the north and south sides is complete. The remaining work includes the access to the future Whole Foods store on the south side of Chesapeake Avenue, plus the first block off of Washington Avenue on the north side. This will be completed before the end of the year.

Stoneleigh-Anneslie Storm Water Project

The Department of Public Works and Transportation is addressing storm water concerns in the Stoneleigh-Anneslie community and updating the century-old drainage system. 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 79 percent finished. The storm drain on Wardman Road is finished and completion is expected by fall. Construction hours, traffic changes, temporary water shut-offs and parking impacts are being announced as the job progresses.
