A contractor began to take down a house slated for demolition as part of a highway upgrade project in Aberdeen Tuesday and then abruptly stopped when the crew found some hidden asbestos. The home, at the corner of Route 22 and Graceford Drive, is one of 18 to be razed along Route 22 (Aberdeen Thruway) between Beards Hill Road and the Aberdeen Proving Ground gate in conjunction with BRAC-related intersection improvements along the highway. The ranch-style home at 355 Graceford was slated to be the first home demolished, according to a Maryland State Highway Administration media advisory sent Monday afternoon.

Letter to The Aegis | April 17, 2014
Last week as I was driving down Route 22 around Amyclae development, I was amazed and gratified to see a very large red headed Tom Turkey glided in front of me across Route 22 and into a wooded lot adjacent to Amyclae. This coupled with the flocks of geese habitually in the fields at Eva Mar Farm, along with the many deer, fox and hawk and an occasional eagle in the wood line that borders Amyclae, Tudor Manor, Fox Chase and Wagner Farms developments makes me appreciate where I have chosen to live for the past 12 years.

In the wake of criticism from County Executive David R. Craig and a vocal group of Churchville citizens, Fallston County Councilwoman Veronica "Roni" L. Chenowith said Friday she will rescind her vote to approve intense business development of a parcel on Route 22 near the former Big M drive-in theater. Last week a "no" vote from Chenowith, a Republican from Fallston, would have struck down the project. But with the council now down to six voting members after the mobilization of a councilman for military duty, she will need to secure another vote to change the outcome.

Voting against the pleas of some residents and the county executive, the Harford County Council approved a series of rezoning requests last night - even though some members expressed concerns that the rezoning process has flaws that need fixing. Among the properties granted more intense zoning were two tracts totaling about 36 acres on Route 22 between Bel Air and Aberdeen, an area that County Executive David R. Craig has said will be a crucial pipeline that requires planning as thousands of new jobs and new residents flood the area after expansion at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

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.
