SHA Announces 2011 Baltimore Metro Area Projects

Representatives dub 2011 "the year of the bridge."

At a press conference at the Maryland State Highway Administration District 4 office in Cockeysville, officials outlined major area construction that will affect motorists throughout the spring and summer months. This will include the replacement or rehabilitation of four bridges located on the Baltimore Beltway.

The SHA urges drivers to check out e-Road Ready 2011 to keep up to date on road, highway and bridge work in the area.

I've been wondering whether the SHA is still planning to extend Shawan Road to connect it to Ashland/Paper Mill. That was something they talked about in the past, but I haven't heard anything about that project in years.
Nayana Davis May 24, 2011 at 11:17 AM
I'll make some calls and try to find out.

They should because that whole section where Shawan meets York Rd is a mess.
