A contractor for Baltimore's department of recreation and parks is working to smother a smoldering compost pile at a facility just south of Cold Spring Lane, according to a spokeswoman. The contractor was adding more dirt to reduce the flow of oxygen to the pile at Camp Small, she said. The facility is west of Interstate 83 and the smoke was visible to morning commuters. Compost piles heat as the organic materials decay, said the spokeswoman, Gwendolyn Chambers. Occasionally, the pile may grow warm enough to smolder if there's enough oxygen, she said.

The enlargement and improvement of the I-83 overpass at Middletown Road in Parkton has now been going on for well over a year to the delight of the numerous drivers trying to enter 83 or exit to go home, and those traveling to or from York. We are talking about an improvement job on a bridge with a span of maybe 300 feet over a freeway. Just recently, they were repaving the old span. There is hope. In the year 55 B.C.

State police say three people found dead Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash along a southbound ramp from Interstate 83 onto I-695 in Baltimore County had likely been there since early Sunday morning. Police said the crash site wasn't discovered for two days because it was far from the roadway and hidden by trees and brush. When a driver reported seeing something that looked like a vehicle in the woods Tuesday, police responded and found pieces of the car and the bodies of the three men. The discovery prompted an investigation that closed ramps at southbound I-83 onto the outer loop of the Beltway for more than six hours, from late afternoon into the evening.

Three people were killed in a single-car crash on a ramp at the intersection of two major Baltimore freeways Tuesday afternoon, State Police said. Early investigation suggested the vehicle was traveling southbound on Interstate 83 when, for reasons which have not been determined, it left the roadway and went into a heavily wooded area on the left side of the road and then struck a large tree, police said. The impact of the crash caused the car to break into pieces. Police received a call at around 4 p.m. from a citizen who said he saw a vehicle off the roadway on the southbound I-83 ramp on to the outer loop of Interstate 695 in Timonium, but the exact time of the accident is not known, according to a news release.
