As late-spring weather brings more favorable conditions, community members and commuters can expect increased construction activity on the project to improve safety and access on Baltimore Road.
Throughout the winter, the city’s contractor concentrated on sanitary sewer installation and water line relocations on the block between Woodburn Road and Edmonston Drive. Work will continue in this general vicinity in late spring with the installation of storm drain structures and pipe, followed shortly by concrete curb and gutter, and pervious concrete for the shared-use path.
Concrete work is planned first for the roadway’s north, followed by the south side. Property owners will be notified individually in advance of driveway closures that are expected to enable storm drain and concrete installations.
Roadway resurfacing will be one of the final steps of the project. Completion of the project is now planned for fall, a schedule delay driven primarily by supply chain issues limiting the timely delivery of construction materials.
