City trash truck overturns, clogs traffic on I-695

A Baltimore trash truck that jackknifed and overturned on Interstate 695 just south of the Anne Arundel County line yesterday morning caused major traffic delays but no serious injuries, Maryland State Police said.

The truck overturned in the middle of morning traffic and slid across two lanes of the outer loop near the exit to Baltimore Washington Parkway. Trash strewn across the southbound lanes brought traffic to a standstill for about two hours.

Several bright-yellow emergency vehicles lined the Beltway, and workers tried to collect the trash and turn the truck upright. Travelers were squeezed from four lanes into one service lane to skirt the incident.

County now accepting land preservation forms

Anne Arundel County officials are encouraging residents interested in participating in land preservation programs to submit applications to the Department of Recreation and Parks today so they can be forwarded quickly to the state.

County officials accept land preservation applications throughout the year but send them to the state once every six months. Development easements go with the land and cannot be revoked, even if the property is sold.

Since 1979, 10,551 acres have been preserved through county and state preservation programs.
