Access road planned for Wellworth Way

A $7.5 million state project has been announced to construct an access road, to be known as the Wellworth Way Extension, adjacent to Route 32 in West Friendship.

Those who live along the east side of Route 32 south of Route 144 will be able to use the access road to travel to Wellworth Way and back to Route 144, providing safe access to Route 32 at the intersection of Routes 144 and 32.

The access road is being designed; construction is to begin in 2009.

Traffic on Route 32 is expected to increase from the current 27,000 vehicles a day near Route 144 to more than 49,000 in 2030, according to the State Highway Administration.

Around Town

Roadwork -- The State Highway Administration is completing a $530,000 resurfacing and safety project along Route 108 (Clarksville Pike), from the west to the east sides of Trotter Road. The project will improve safety at Trotter Road and Meadow Vista Way by slightly lowering the slope of the road, which now creates a blind spot for motorists making turns at the intersection. Day and night single-lane closures along Route 108 and Trotter Road are expected from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. weekdays. The project is expected to be finished later this month.

Watercolor -- Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks will sponsor watercolor classes with Carol Zika for ages 55 and older from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays, starting this week, at Glenwood Community Center. The class is designed for beginners, but continuing students and experienced painters are welcome. A supply list will be discussed at the first class. Registration is required. The cost is $33 for a six-week session.

An "Artful Journaling" program for senior citizens, also taught by Zika, will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to noon Wednesdays, beginning this week. Participants will create a journal using notations, artwork and memorabilia, collage, weaving, stitching and transparencies. The cost is $33 for the six-week class, with an additional fee for materials. 410-313-7279.
