Flanigan & Sons Inc. for road work done in 2011 and 2012 for the Baltimore Grand Prix.  The company's road work ended up being more expensive than anticipated, but city transporation officials didn't immediately bring the increased costs...

After seeing the security tapes of the Navy Yard shooter in the hallways, it's hard to believe the building's surveillance cameras are not monitored in real time. Had this been the case, the shooter could have been stopped long before he killed so many. Many office buildings and high rise condominium buildings do this, so why not the Navy Yard? Some are quick to blame guns, but look at the lack of security at what is supposed to be a very secure place. This outcome could have been much different.

Letter to The Aegis | June 19, 2012
Editor: In response to the recent editorial by The Aegis regarding two recently constructed Harford County projects, I would like to offer the following comments. The Harford County Department of Public Works is and has been very aware of the cost to maintain the County's infrastructure and strives to be good stewards of the County taxpayer's dollars. Furthermore, the idea that the Department would be involved in "government waste" on two important transportation related projects is unfounded.

Welcome back to work. If you are like most Americans, Memorial Day weekend was not only a solemn occasion to recall the men and women of the U.S. armed forces who gave their lives in service to their country but also an opportunity to take some time away from the job, hit the road and see a bit of America with the family. And chances are, as this was one of the biggest travel weekends of the year, the state of the nation's roads, bridges and airports did not go unnoticed. They are, to put it mildly, in failing condition and getting worse.

The State Highway Administration will temporarily close the northbound and southbound Interstate 95 ramps onto the Inner Loop of the Beltway south of Baltimore as part of its project to improve the flow of traffic at one of the region's busiest and most congested interchanges. Both ramps will be closed Sunday and Monday at 11 p.m. and will reopen by 5 a.m. the following day. A detour, using the eastbound Beltway to Hollins Ferry Road, will be in place. The highway agency said its contractor is expected to complete its widening of the current single-lane ramps to westbound Interstate 695 by late October.

As if the double-lane closure on downtown Pratt Street weren't enough, the city Department of Transportation started a series of street closings downtown as part of the preparation for next year's Grand Prix auto race. For about two weeks, the city is closing three of five lanes of southbound Light Street between Lombard and Pratt streets for resurfacing work on the intersection. Two of four lanes of northbound Light and Calvert streets will also be closed for similar work. Monday morning rush hour traffic appeared to be moving smoothly on the affected roadways, including Light Street between Conaway and Pratt.

EDITORIAL FROM THE RECORD | April 10, 2013
Over the next several weeks in Aberdeen, a dozen and a half homes along Route 22 will be demolished to make way for the road to be widened. No doubt more than a few lives were disrupted when the Maryland State Highway Administration began acquiring property to make way for a wider roadway, but protections are in place to ensure property owners are adequately compensated even as the interests of taxpayers – those of us paying for those houses –...
