Carroll County will ask the State Highway Administration to study how Route 140 from the end of Interstate 795 in Baltimore County to Reese Road can be improved.Improvements may include a bridge over the intersection with Route 91 in Finksburg, interchanges instead of lights at intersections such as Sandymount Road, and access roads."We can fix up that road faster than we can get anything new," Planning Director Edmund R. Cueman told the county commissioners yesterday.Curtailing access to Route 140 would be an alterative to extending I-795 through Carroll, he said.
