Baltimore County Councilmembers David Marks and Wade Kach announced on Monday that a brick crosswalk would be constructed to improve safety at Pine Grove Middle School.
The $25,000 crosswalk will be built by the end of the year at the intersection of Proctor Lane and Old Harford Road.
Kristen Piscopo is president of the Perring Park Community Association and a parent of a student at the school.
“This project should at least slow some of the traffic along Old Harford Road,” Piscopo said. “I would like to thank Pine Grove Middle School for its support, as well as Councilmembers David Marks and Wade Kach for their help in securing the funding. Senator Kathy Klausmeier discussed the need for better public safety during National Night Out on August 1, 2017, and also walked with our Perring Park Citizens on Patrol on September 18, 2017.”
Councilman Marks was a sponsor of the legislation that gave greater flexibility to communities where there is support for traffic calming.
