Watkins Way Alley in Central Towson Is Being Rebuilt

Baltimore County contractors began work on the Watkins Way alley on July 15. The alley, which provides entry to the Washington Avenue Parking Lot and is located between Allegheny Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue, is being reconstructed. The three-phase project is expected to require a month to complete.

Information: Email engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Water Project in Perry Hall

Baltimore County is replacing 4,000 feet of water line in parts of Seven Courts Drive, Proctor Lane and Gunview Road. Work began in late February and is about 65 percent complete. The contractor’s crews are currently doing chlorination testing. Tie-ins are expected in the near future. Contractors will replace four- and 24-inch diameter prestressed concrete pipe with ductile-iron pipe in a project that is anticipated to take between three and six months to complete. The project will cost $1.5 million. As the work progresses, residents will be kept informed by the contractor regarding temporary water shutoffs and parking changes needed to facilitate progress. Driving lanes disturbed by construction will be resurfaced upon completion of the project.

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 75 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.
