The State Highway Administration reopened its long-closed South Mountain rest stops along Interstate 70 near the Frederick- Washington County line this week after an $18.3 million renovation project. The agency opened a section of the eastbound and westbound rest stops after expanding the parking area and updating restroom facilities. The stops, between Exits 35 and 42 in Frederick County, have been provided with walking trails, picnic areas, parking and restrooms that comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. According to the SHA, the reopened rest stops each have 76 parking spaces for passenger vehicles, 26 parking spaces for commercial trucks and six parking spaces for RVs and buses.

A Harford County retailer as popular for its yard-sale atmosphere as its couture fashions is reopening next month more than a year after closing. But it will no longer carry the C-Mart name that bargain shoppers knew so well. C-Mart once attracted a loyal following of frugal shoppers with high-end tastes from around the region until attempts by new owners to modernize in a bad economy forced it out of business in 2008. Now a member of C-Mart's founding family is reopening the store Feb. 3 in its original location under the name The Big TARP Company Store.

The Route 90 bridge to Ocean City, closed since mid-October for emergency repairs, will reopen about 10 a.m. today - just in time for Thanksgiving, the State Highway Administration has announced. The bridge, one of two connecting the mainland with the ocean resort, had been expected to remain closed through mid-December. The 38-year-old bridge over Assawoman Bay in Worcester County was closed after inspectors discovered deterioration in a girder on an 85-foot section of the span. While the bridge was being repaired, the U.S. 50 bridge was the only one serving the barrier island.

Starting today, Sudhir Shah will close his Catonsville convenience store three hours earlier. In the fall, he will lock the door at dusk and only take in customers whose faces he recognizes. The changes, though, will end there. Shah said he won't keep a gun, trusting, instead that something such as the November robbery at his store — in which he was shot in the head and a customer was killed in front of him — will never happen again. "It screwed up my life," said Shah, as he prepared the store earlier this week to reopen on a full-time basis with a communitywide celebration.

Creme  will reopen soon with a new look and a new name.  Ezra Tilaye, who owns the Mount Vernon restaurant with his mother, Tegist Ayalew, said that the new concept will be called Ware House 518, a nod to one of the many businesses that have been housed at 518 N. Charles St. over more than a century. Baltimore diners know this address for Louie's Bookstore Cafe and Ixia, the two restaurants that occupied the building's ground-floor space before Ayalew and Tilaye opened Creme, a version of their popular restaurant on U Street in Washington, back in 2010.

This week, youngsters across Maryland will board the "big yellow cheese wagon," as it's sometimes called, and head back to school. And chances are high (aside perhaps from those teary-eyed moms and dads waving good-bye to their kindergartners for the first time), the school bus commute from home to classroom will take place without incident. But the latest survey conducted by the Maryland State Department of Education shows that the students' fate is being tempted on a regular basis by drivers who seem either unaware of the law or unwilling to follow it. Drivers are forbidden to pass a bus in either direction when its stop arm swings out and its lights are flashing, yet that happens all the time.

The Snyder family considers itself pretty good at "whipping restaurants back into shape. " They've done it several times in recent years when flooding caused temporary closures of the family's Snyder's Willow Grove restaurant, and they're planning to do it when they reopen late next month. But when Snyder's Willow Grove opens this time, it won't be at the familiar Hammonds Ferry Road location in Linthicum Heights but at a new one about a mile and a half away. "The family doesn't want to give up the restaurant business," said manager Kim Snyder, daughter of owner Vernon Snyder.

A second newly constructed travel plaza along Interstate 95 in Maryland opened early Tuesday morning, about six weeks ahead of schedule, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority. The opening of the new $26 million, 30,000-square-foot Chesapeake House in Cecil County follows the January opening of the new Maryland House in Harford County. The state redesigned and rebuilt both travel plazas under a public-private partnership with Areas USA, which invested $56 million in the projects in exchange for operating rights through 2047.

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore will reopen March 13, but some exhibits will remain closed to visitors after damage caused by February's historic snowstorms, a zoo spokeswoman said Tuesday. The zoo's March 1 opening was postponed when storms brought down trees and destroyed two aviaries, causing $1.5 million in damage, and the costs of repairs, employee overtime and lost revenue have provided more challenges as the institution tries to emerge from recent financial difficulties. The African Aviary might not reopen until the fall, zoo spokeswoman Jane Ballentine said.

Officials with the Maryland Transportation Authority said the truck was carrying heavy stone slabs that were thrown all across the highway during the accident.
