Construction Continues on Baltimore Road Project as Roadway is Set to Reopen

Construction continues to improve safety and access along Baltimore Road, which is scheduled to reopen to vehicle and pedestrian traffic this month.

The road had been closed between Gladstone and Broadwood drives since June while a city contractor replaced the roadway culvert at the stream crossing near Rockville Cemetery, relocated water lines, installed storm drain connections and restored the stream.

Progress has also been made on the project’s segment between First Street and Woodburn Road, where crews installed storm drainpipe and inlets, new curb and gutter, and pervious sidewalks.

Crews are now installing new sanitary sewer along westbound Baltimore Road, on the roadway’s north side, between Woodburn Road and Edmonston Drive. Relocating the sewer, which is designed to avoid conflicts with the proposed storm drain, is expected to be completed by late January.

Impacts during this phase of construction will include lane closures with flagger operations during the day, temporary driveway closures, on-street parking restrictions and construction noise. Signs will be posted to notify motorists and residents of parking restrictions and road closures. Residents will be notified 48 hours in advance of driveway closures.

Storm drain and sidewalks between Woodburn Road and Edmonston Drive will be installed during a future phase of the project. Residents will be notified before that work begins.

Roadway resurfacing will be one of the final steps of the project, which is expected to be completed in spring 2022. Project progress is dependent on weather and supply-chain issues, which delayed the reopening of the previously closed segment of roadway.
