Double T DinerA local landmark is preparing to reopen its doors.

The Double-T Diner in Perry Hall has been closed since June of last year, when plans were made to roll the diner to its new location so that a CVS store could be built at the corner of Joppa Road and Belair Road.

Now, Councilman David Marks says the diner could reopen in September.

Councilman Marks: Long-awaited expansion of Joppa/Harford intersection advances

Carney MDBaltimore County Councilman David Marks confirmed to NottinghamMD.com on Thursday that the long-awaited expansion of the Joppa Road/Harford Road intersection in Carney will advance this year, with design work completed in 2018 and construction starting next spring.

The intersection is one of the most congested in Baltimore County. With the improvements, an additional lane will be added on the north side of Joppa Road and the western edge of Harford Road.

A copy of the letter from State Highway Administration District Engineer Wendy Wolcott, obtained by NottinghamMD.com, can be viewed below.

“At this time, MDOT SHA anticipates its project will be advertised for bidders in late fall 2018,” Wolcott wrote. “If the bid process is successful, MDOT SHA anticipates starting construction in spring 2019 and completing construction in spring 2020.”

Councilman Marks has pushed for the expansion project since his first term of office.

“Once the Joppa Road water project is done, my focus will be on a permanent resurfacing of that route between Perry Hall and Carney,” Marks said. “That resurfacing, along with this interchange project, should ease travel for motorists along this corridor.”
