Regional planners request money in draft for Route 30 bypass

Planners have requested about $2.6 million in the draft of a regional transportation plan for engineering work and right of way acquisition for a Route 30 bypass around Hampstead.

A draft of the 1994-1998 Transportation Improvement Program includes $2.48 million for engineering work and $160,000 for buying rights of way. No money for construction will be requested, officials said.

The draft plan will be submitted to the Maryland Department of Transportation next month, said Harvey S. Bloom, director of transportation planning for the Baltimore Metropolitan Council.

The council, which assists local governments in regional planning on transportation issues, released the draft yesterday at a meeting in Baltimore. The draft includes requests for all Baltimore metropolitan area counties.

After state transportation officials review the draft, they will submit a request for project money to the federal government, Mr. Bloom said.


* Hampstead: Charles William Morgan of Hampstead reported to state police that someone forced open his car and stole a Mossberg 270 rifle valued at $300. The vehicle was parked in the 2100 block of Hanover Pike on Sunday.
