A lawyer representing opponents of the proposed Wegmans store in Columbia is vowing to take the case to Maryland's highest courts and perhaps to federal court despite another setback this week. Meanwhile, Wegmans is preparing to move forward with the project despite the legal appeals, said Stephen Leaty, the grocery chain's project manager. "It really is an internal scheduling thing. We're anxious to get going on this," he said, but months of internal planning and preparations are required.

Councilman Tom Quirk is right to take a go-slow approach on the Central Maryland Y proposal to build a comprehensive medical services facility on the grounds of the Rolling Road Catonsville Y campus. Councilman Quirk wants to consider community suggestions and concerns to produce the best outcome for the Catonsville Y and the larger community. While he says he endorses the proposed 60,000-square foot St. Agnes Medical Center facility, he thinks it is a better fit in the established Frederick Road business corridor, where there are complementary business amenities and supports to meet the parking and traffic requirements of the facility.

The most disruptive phase of the project to rebuild the bridge south of the Harbor Tunnel toll plaza is expected to begin Saturday and continue for two weeks. The four-lane Interstate 895 bridge will be narrowed to one lane in each direction as crews repair the steel structure and replace the concrete surface. Maryland Transportation Authority officials are asking motorists to use alternate routes, especially during rush hours, to avoid traffic snarls. A state traffic analysis predicted that backups could stretch up to four miles at times during the two-week period.

Acting on a recommendation from the county planning commission, the board unanimously voted to move forward with construction of Shepherd's Mill Road, a 6,500-foot segment that will intersect Route 75 east of town. The road and a parallel railroad spur will become part of the comprehensive plan for growth in the town, which is Carroll's smallest.
