People who travel Prospect Road in Mount Airy had hoped the recent regrading of the road would eliminate a dangerous sight distance problem. They're not satisfied.Contractors spent two weeks in November lowering part of the road to improve visibility over the crest of a hill.That helped, residents say, but the road remains dangerous."It's made it better but not good enough," said Adrian O'Boyle, who lives on West Road in Mount Airy Village West, a development off Prospect Road."It's still dangerous because you have to come out into the road to see if somebody's coming or not. Somebody's going to get hurt," he said.

Business and community interests don't always see eye-to-eye, but in a tight-knit area such as Towson, the people we do business with are often those who make their lives, as well as their living, here. Even business owners who don't fall into that category at least recognize that when the community is healthy, active and prosperous, they are, too. That's why it's equal parts admirable and logical that the Towson business community is coming to the aid of the Assistance Centers of Towson Churches.

PHOENIX - Orioles rookie Henry Urrutia hasn't started a game since Aug. 3, but he was still an important part of the club's eight-game interleague road trip through National League West parks in San Diego, San Francisco and Arizona, as he pinch hit in all but one game. Urrutia is still getting adjusted to the major league game. When the Cuban defector arrived in Sarasota, Fla., this spring, he hadn't played in more than two seasons, so the organization was determined to give him 200 at-bats at Double- Bowie before promoting him to Triple-A Norfolk.

SEATTLE -- The Orioles' 10-game West Coast road trip was a major test whether they could hold their own while playing against three playoff-caliber teams across the country. The trip was characterized by closely contested games - seven were decided by two runs or fewer - in which strong pitching and clutch hitting was often the difference. And on Sunday afternoon, as the sun set on what might be their most grueling stretch away from home this season, the Orioles finished the road trip with a 3-2 victory in 10 innings over the Seattle Mariners in front of an announced 26,523 at Safeco Field.

The Baltimore-Washington Parkway reopened to traffic early Saturday morning, after the successful removal of segment of the West Nursery Road bridge overnight. The closures of the parkway, which is a major route to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, are part of an ongoing and sometimes troubled project to replace the bridges by rolling them down the highway and slotting them into position. Hurricane Sandy and construction mishaps had delayed the project, but the bridge over the northbound side of the parkway - also called Route 295 - was replaced last weekend.

After some trouble on the first attempt, the State Highway Administration removed the 300-ton West Nursery Road bridge over the northbound lanes of Baltimore-Washington Parkway overnight and reopened the road early Saturday. Crews used hydraulic equipment to lift the bridge deck out of place, after an attempt two weeks ago that failed when the load shifted and the Highway Administration had to assemble a massive crane on the parkway to lift the deck back into place. The parkway reopened at 7:30 a.m. after the bridge was carried several hundred feet north on the parkway, also called Route 295, and dropped off in the median.

The State Highway Administration plans to resume work on its "bridge on wheels" project this weekend after construction mishaps and the former Hurricane Sandy delayed the installation of two new spans on West Nursery Road over the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. The Anne Arundel County roadway is a crucial artery to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. This will be the second time workers will try to replace the aging West Nursery Road bridge over the parkway, or Route 295, by rolling in new, prefabricated bridge decks.

After hours of impassioned debate and irate speeches, th Greater Severna Park Council Tuesday took a chance and endorsed an option for the East-West Boulevard that does not exist in the state's plans for the road.The umbrella group of civic associations voted 34-to-4 to support a two-lane road on an 80-foot right of way that would clip the southern corners of Elvaton Park and extend from Shipley's Choice to Veteran's Highway.The move has infuriated residents of both neighborhoods, who said they do not want the state to build the road at all.About 40 protesters accosted County Executive Robert R. Neall, who has supported the road, as he toured Severna Park yesterday.

Over the last two weekends of October, highway crews will replace two bridges over the Baltimore-Washington Parkway that serve the airport and hotel district by rolling the old ones out and rolling the new ones in. The "bridge on wheels" swap, used in other states but making its debut in Maryland, saves time and money, reduces traffic disruptions and cuts the potential for work-zone accidents, State Highway Administration officials said. "We looked at traditional methods and with the traffic level there, closing the bridges wasn't an option for an extended period," said Jeff Robert, a state project engineer.
