Glen Burnie

February 24, 1993

Panel named to study bypass or alternatives

Thirteen people have been named to a committee studying whether the county should build a controversial bypass linking Old Stage Road with points east near Ritchie Highway or take other safety measures.

The road, which would cost more than $2 million, has been on the books for more than 20 years, but has never been built.

County Executive Robert R. Neall told the Glen Burnie Improvement Association earlier this month that he felt the Old Stage Road and Thelma Avenue shortcut, which includes an elbow-curve, was unsafe.

A child was struck by a car on Thelma Avenue in November 1991.

Mr. Neall, who favors the bypass, offered to have a committee of local residents advise him on whether the road should be constructed.

The committee includes several people who oppose building a road that would bisect their community near Corkran Middle School, people who have advocated that the county build sidewalks in the area, fire officials and others active in Glen Burnie civic affairs.

The group has scheduled its first meeting for 7 p.m., March 2 at the Glen Burnie Improvement Association building, on South Crain Highway near First Avenue.

Mr. Neall has asked the committee to report its recommendations to him by April 15.
