Stop Signs Coming to Carney Intersection
The new signs should be erected within the next month, according to officials.
Two new stop signs will be constructed at the intersection of Oakdale and Appleton Avenues in Carney, one for northbound traffic and one for southbound traffic.
County officials announced the new signs late last week.
County councilman David Marks told Patch in an email that, "following an engineering study, the Baltimore County Department of Public Works determined that stop signs would improve safety at this local intersection."
Marks worked with 8th legislative district Del. Joe Boteler to have the signs installed.
"I would like to thank Baltimore County for so quickly responding to this request," Boteler said in an email.
"The elected officials from northeastern Baltimore County are all committed to making our neighborhoods as safe as possible," Marks said in a statement.
The signs will be added to the intersection "as the workload [of the Department of Public Works] permits," probably within the next month, according to the email.
