Intersection changes as work begins on Edwin Raynor Blvd.

May 18, 2001

A new segment of Edwin Raynor Boulevard will be opened this morning, shifting its intersection with Fort Smallwood Road several hundred feet to directly in front of Tick Neck Park, the county Department of Public Works said yesterday. Motorists are urged to use caution in the new traffic patterns.

The change is part of a $1.8 million project to improve traffic flow between the two roads. When complete, the project will allow the heavier volume of north-south traffic to flow between the roads without stopping. The project began in October and is expected to be completed in mid-November.

Motorists who used to turn left from Edwin Raynor Boulevard to northbound Fort Smallwood Road will instead travel straight through the new intersection, where Edwin Raynor becomes Fort Smallwood Road. Likewise, motorists who used to turn right from southbound Fort Smallwood Road to Edwin Raynor will instead travel straight through the new intersection, the department said.

Until completion of a new segment of Fort Smallwood Road in front of Tick Neck Park, motorists continuing on Fort Smallwood Road to or from the Fort Smallwood Park peninsula must turn at a temporary lighted intersection south of Duvall Highway and north of the new intersection with Edwin Raynor Boulevard.

The temporary intersection will be closed when the new segment of Fort Smallwood Road is completed and the new intersection with Edwin Raynor Boulevard is fully operational, the department said.

Woman, 79, wins $10,000 in scratch-off lottery game

A little reinvestment has turned into a $10,000 payoff - in a Maryland Lottery game - for a Pasadena grandmother.

Emily Stewart, 79, a regular player, redeemed a $10 scratch-off prize for five "Hot 7's" tickets Tuesday at the Lauer's IGA store in Riviera Beach, according to a Maryland Lottery announcement.

"I scratched the first ticket, and it said I won $10,000," she was quoted as saying.

Stewart - who has four children, 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren - claimed the prize yesterday at lottery headquarters. She beat odds of 625,000-to-1 in winning the game's top prize, said lottery spokesman Jimmy White.
