Construction on the Towson "Bike Beltway", which uses a set of bike lanes and signage to demarcate the 4.2 miles of roads around downtown Towson, will begin this year and should be completed by June, according to a county public works official. Stephen Weber, chief of Baltimore County's Division of Traffic Engineering said Tuesday after a meeting of the Baltimore County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee that the contract for the work was signed last month. The Maryland Bikeways Program gave Baltimore County a $100,000 grant - with a commitment by the county to match 20 percent of that - in July 2012.

THE PTA AT Cromwell Valley Elementary School is at red alert over a problem right in its front yard.The school of 458 students is on Providence Road, just south of Interstate 695. But drive by anytime and you'd think you were at Daytona as cars exit from the Beltway and head toward Goucher Boulevard as if they were racing for the checkered flag.From Goucher, though, it's even worse. There's a curve just before the elementary school's crosswalk through which cars often careen. Brakes screech, tires burn and near pile-ups put forth quite a scare each day.Just Friday, a two-car collision wrecked the morning homeroom calm.

With NFL dreams and sleepy eyes, small-school standouts, practice-squad castoffs and a pack of unknown draft hopefuls stepped onto the Ravens' indoor practice field Saturday morning. For many of them, it was the closest they will come to playing in the NFL. But it was an opportunity that didn't exist for relative no-names like themselves two years ago. The NFL conducted one of its 11 regional combines at Ravens headquarters in Owings Mills on Saturday. More than 130 under-the-radar NFL prospects - most with ties to the region - slipped on cleats and squeezed into compression shorts, hoping to earn an invitation to the NFL Super Regional Combine on March 30-31 at Detroit's Ford Field and potentially catch the attention of professional scouts.
