Baltimore County Councilman David Marks announced on Friday that the Maryland State Highway Administration had begun patching portions of Belair Road from I-695 to Still Meadow Drive. The improvements precede a resurfacing of the corridor that is expected to begin in May.
Additionally, county crews will begin their work soon on local resurfacing projects. While the list has not been finalized, Councilman Marks said he continues to push for resurfacing of the portions of Joppa Road affected by the placement of the new water line.
“I drive Joppa Road every day,” Councilman Marks said. “I, too, experience the bumpy ride along the corridor, particularly from Walther Boulevard to Belair Road, near Old Harford Road and in Towson. The resurfacing of these areas is a top priority for me.”
With limited funding, Councilman Marks will be highlighting roads that are the most damaged and used by the most travelers.
