Next week, drivers should avoid East Ordnance Road (Route 710) between the Arundel Expressway (Route 10) and Pennington Avenue (Route 173), according to the State Highway Administration. Beginning Monday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., one lane will be closed on that section of Ordnance Road while a left-turn lane is installed. The closure is expected to continue until May 4. Traffic is expected to be heavy on Ordnance Road because it is being used as a detour while the Maryland Transportation Authority repairs the Interstate 695 drawbridge over Curtis Creek.

Inmates at the Anne Arundel County jail in Glen Burnie have filed a civil rights complaint against their wardens, complaining that they are unfairly forced to choose between attending religious services and receiving visitors. The lawsuit, filed this week in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on behalf of 50 inmates at the Ordnance Road jail, seeks $60 million in damages. Inmates say they are told "that we must choose between visits and God," according to the complaint. They can either wait in the dorm for visitors, who may not show up, or attend Christian fellowship, the complaint states.

Most of the inmates awaiting trial in Anne Arundel are crammed 20 at a time into dorm-like rooms designed for 14 people. Jail officials point to such conditions when they talk about the challenges of keeping pace with a growing inmate population. The overcrowding has led to more jailhouse violence, say the officials, whose proposal for an expansion project was recently deleted from the county budget by lawmakers seeking to channel money to the school system. The $2 million in design funding for 2009 would have begun a five-year, $53 million project to add 700 inmate beds at the county's two facilities.

Anne Arundel County has more than enough space at its two detention centers to house criminals sentenced to jail. Especially since last year, when a $15 million renovation and expansion project at the Jennifer Road facility in Annapolis was completed. So why are inmates at the Glen Burnie jail sleeping on the floor while gleaming new wings at the Annapolis detention center stand empty? Simple, corrections officials say. They don't have enough staff to open several areas of the Annapolis center, which leads to crowding at the Glen Burnie facility, built less than five years ago on Ordnance Road.
