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 10 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.

Essex Structural Sewer Rehabilitation

Baltimore County is investing $4.4 million into structurally rehabilitating sewer lines in Essex in the area of Eastern Boulevard, Mace Avenue and Riverside Drive.

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, which is 55 percent complete, is expected to be finished in early 2022. The old 12-inch cast-iron line, which dates back to 1923, was prone to breaking. It will be replaced with a 24-inch diameter line that should improve reliability, system hydraulics and fire protection along the Belair Road corridor. 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.

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.
