Editorial from The Aegis | March 7, 2013
It's not much of a surprise that the Maryland State Highway Administration is again looking at making I-95 wider in Harford County from the Route 24 interchange south to the Baltimore County line and beyond. The state has dozens of projects in the long-term planning phase at any given moment and, depending on the politics of the moment, any such project can be jumped to the head of the line, or bumped back. The latest series of I-95 construction projects that have included major upgrades of the Route 24, White Marsh Boulevard and Baltimore Beltway interchanges, as well as the addition of extra lanes, was a low priority early in Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s administration, then it suddenly became a high priority and construction was begun.

The hundreds of thousands of motorists who jam the eight-lane asphalt swath along much of the Baltimore Beltway each day would hardly recognize the road's southeastern reaches -- an anemic, two-lane strip marked by painted yellow lines and metal stakes.But today -- 45 years after Beltway construction began -- a 3.6-mile expansion from Key Bridge to North Point Boulevard is scheduled to open, eliminating the last section of undivided highway on a road that is the heart of the area's transportation network.

Hopes for redevelopment of the former Sparrows Point steel mill in Baltimore County - and the promise of new jobs - took two giant strides forward Thursday as the land was sold to a new owner who also reached agreement with state and federal environmental agencies on a cleanup plan for the polluted site. The massive former Bethlehem Steel facility was shuttered two years ago and auctioned off in a bankruptcy-law proceeding to salvage companies. The land has now been sold for an undisclosed amount to Sparrows Point Terminal, an offshoot of the Hanover-based investment firm Redwood Capital Investments LLC. Under terms of an agreement announced Thursday with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Department of the Environment, Redwood Capital will commit $48 million to clean up the property's land and groundwater, and pay $3 million to the EPA to investigate issues in the water surrounding Sparrows Point.

Work will begin Thursday on a long-planned project to expand a portion of Route 29 in Howard County that is considered a "major commuter bottleneck" near Columbia's town center, officials said. The $32.7 million project will see three miles of northbound Route 29 widened from two to three lanes from just north of Route 32 to just south of Route 175. The work will also remove direct access points from residential streets onto Route 29 in the area, furthering the transition of the road into a controlled-access highway.
