BALTIMORE COUNTY RESIDENTS!! OF INTEREST!!
RURAL ROADS MEETING!!
Tonight, Baltimore County will hold its annual Rural Roads Meeting at the Ag Center from 5:30-7:30.
It is important for residents to show up and express appreciation for the information exchange and to reiterate the need to adhere to rural road design standards that preserve the character of our rural, historic area. Without such adherence, our roads are subject to improvements, that over time, result in substantial widening, straightening, flattening, and increased volumes and speeds of traffic. The county has been responsive to the Valleys Planning Council in their push for improvements that match the settings and limit roadway expansions.
It is also important for residents to express support for the roundabout planned for the Tufton/Greenspring/Worthington intersection. This intersection has long been a concern due to rush hour congestion and the need for daring left turns. A light was a potential solution, but at this location at the entrance to the Worthington Valley, along the Horses and Hounds Scenic Byway, and surrounded by a most spectacular landscape and hundreds of acres under conservation easement, a more fitting option was needed. The VPC hired consultants to design an appropriate roundabout, which will be a modified single-lane with a planted center island. It promises to be an improvement in both safety and flow, and, unlike a light, will not require vehicles to sit and wait in non-rush-hour times, when there is often no need to come to a full stop. The roundabout will serve as a traffic calming device and is considered a context-sensitive solution within the Worthington Valley National Register Historic District.
The Rural Roads Meeting is run like an Open House. There’s no presentation, so you can pop in, stop by a few stations to see what roads are in line for resurfacing and which bridges are scheduled for repair. So please drop in, make a point to speak to the Public Works staff at the stations, and express gratitude for the county’s willingness to help retain the feel of our rural roads. ... See MoreSee Less
