Widening of Aviation Blvd. begins

The State Highway Administration has begun initial work to widen Aviation Boulevard near Baltimore-Washington International Airport from two lanes to four lanes.

Workers from Reliable Contracting Co. of Millersville have been clearing, grading and building storm water management ponds, constructing the new southbound roadways and clearing the way for part of a new hiker-biker trail that's being developed along with the roadside.

The $2.3 million project, which will tie in with a planned I-97 interchange at Dorsey Road, should be completed by mid-September next year, officials said.

Workers will also construct part of a hiker-biker trail that eventually will circle the airport and connect with the B&A Trail.

SHA officials announced last spring they planned to expand one mile of the road north of Dorsey Road to accommodate traffic.
