Temporary traffic signal awaits power

December 15, 1997

A temporary traffic signal at Route 32 and Springfield Avenue awaits a power connection from Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. before it can be made operational, a State Highway Administration official said.

The best estimate for connection is the beginning of the year, said John Concannon, state assistant district engineer for traffic.

"We don't have an exact date but it is in the BGE system," he said. "Typically that means about 10 working days [from Friday], provided there are no emergencies."

Before turning the signal on, the SHA will install flashing signs north and south of the intersection for 72 hours.

SHA turned on a permanent traffic signal north of Liberty Road at Route 32 and Bartholow Road on Friday.


Sykesville: Firefighters from Gamber and Liberty Road in Baltimore County assisted Sykesville at 4: 21 p.m. Thursday, responding to a house fire in the 6100 block of Rolling View Drive. Units were out 20 minutes.
