Council District 2

Pedestrian Study for Pikesville

Baltimore County has hired a consultant to perform a desk audit in Pikesville to assess pedestrian conditions and to learn if improvements can and should be made to enhance traffic engineering design for walkers, bicyclists and drivers. The consultant will be reviewing accident histories and the examination will include all facets of traffic control, including signals and crosswalks, taking note of bicycle and pedestrian movements as well. One of the goals of the study, say engineers, is to create a context in which to safely coordinate crosswalks with present and future traffic conditions. The project is temporarily on hold.

Water Line on Falls Road

The Department of Public Works plans to replace 11,000 feet of water line on Falls Road between the Beltway and the City line. The project, which will cost approximately $14 million, will be advertised this fall and scheduled for construction early next year. The replacement of the line—parts of which are more than 90 years old—will improve the reliability of the system. Much of the construction will be done between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., and ingress and egress will be coordinated and provided to all property owners within the project's limits.
