Intersection closes for repairs after water main break

September 30, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A water main break during the weekend forced the closing of the intersection of Cedarcroft Road and Northwood Drive in Northeast Baltimore until the end of the week, a spokesman for the city Department of Public Works said.

Kurt Kocher, the spokesman, said that the underground break was quickly repaired but it caused part of the intersection to collapse.

Kocher said detour signs have been placed at the intersection to direct vehicles to other routes.

Also yesterday, work began on a $1.4 million project to improve Homeland Avenue between Charles Street and York Road in North Baltimore, Kocher said.

Because of the work, the 3,300-foot stretch of the avenue will be closed all winter and perhaps into the spring, Kocher said.

Detours have been established, he said.

The project includes a new road surface, pavements that meander around trees, speed humps instead of the taller speed bumps, and new trees. Pressed concrete resembling cobblestone will enhance curbs and recessed parking will be added to allow traffic to proceed unimpeded.
