State highway crews resurfacing mile stretch of York Road in Towson

$1 million project targeted between Towsontown Boulevard and Stevenson Lane

May 21, 2012|Staff Reports

The State Highway Administration has begun a $1 million resurfacing project along a mile stretch of York Road between Towsontown Boulevard and Stevenson Lane in Towson, which officials said is designed to improve safety and traffic flow.

Crews are upgrading sections of curb, gutter, sidewalk and ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act standards.

The project also includes cleaning and repairing inlets and drainage pipes; and installing underground and overhead traffic detectors at intersections where needed.

Later this summer, crews will patch, grind and resurface this section of York Road.

During construction, crews will shift traffic and close a lane along York Road. Single lane closures and traffic pattern shifts may occur at any time on York Road between Stevenson Lane and Cross Campus Drive.

In a news release, SHA officials said the agency would notify motorists in advance of closures and traffic shifts.

Weather permitting, the entire project will be complete by the fall, officials said.

Citizens with questions may contact SHA's District 4 office, construction division, at 410-229-2420; or toll-free at 1-866-998-0367; or by email at shadistrict4@sha.state.md.us.
