Belair Road Water Line Replacement

Baltimore County is replacing 5,200 feet of water line on Belair Road between the City line and Fowler Avenue. This $6.5 million project is anticipated to begin in the fall or early next year. The old 12-inch cast-iron line, which dates back to 1923, had become prone to breakage. It will be replaced with a 24-inch diameter line that should improve reliability, system hydraulics and fire protection along the Belair Road corridor. When work begins, construction will take place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Ingress and egress will be coordinated and provided to all property owners within the project limits.

Information: Contact the Bureau of Engineering and Construction at engineering@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Mohrs Lane Bridge

The Mohrs Lane Bridge (Bridge B-0143) over the CSX Railroad, north of Pulaski Highway, was closed in 2007 because of structural deterioration. Demolition was completed by CSX in 2011 at no cost to Baltimore County, which assumed ownership and plans to rebuild the span. A new bridge is currently being designed with construction scheduled to begin by 2023. Negotiations with CSX have added to the length of the project. This bridge will be part of the future Campbell Boulevard Corridor.
