SHA officials will discuss widening of Ritchie Highway

State Highway Administration representatives will attend the Greater Severna Park Council next week to discuss the widening of Ritchie Highway through Severna Park.

The six-lane road would extend from Whites Road to Cypress Creek Road through Severna Park.

Ed Meehan, a district engineer with the SHA, said the project, which has been planned for a number of years, is scheduled to begin in the spring of 1994 and likely would be completed by the summer of 1995.

"We're optimistic this will make our lives a bit easier," said council president Pat Troy.

The state plans to create the additional lanes by cutting from both sides of the median, which will still leave a large median, said Ms. Troy. State engineers say taking space for the new lanes from the median is safer than taking space from the road shoulders.
