Harford Road roundabout complete, opens to traffic

Harford Road Traffic Circle RoundaboutThe roundabout in Glen Arm, located along Harford Road at Mt. Vista Road and Glen Arm Road, has been completed.

The State Highway Administration will briefly return in spring 2018 to apply the final surface, as temperatures are not favorable to do so during the the winter months.

Mt. Vista Road, which had been closed for the past two months, reopened at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

The $3.7 million roundabout project, which began fall 2016, necessitated temporary phased closures and detours of Mt. Vista Road and Glen Arm Road throughout the duration of the project. Harford Road, which has an average daily traffic volume of 6,000 vehicles, was not closed during construction.

MDOT SHA has built dozens of roundabouts at intersections across Maryland over the last 25 years, eliminating intersection-related fatal crashes.

The third and final phase of roundabout construction along Harford Road in Kingsville/Glen Arm will soon begin.

Construction on the new roundabout – located at the intersection of Harford Road, Mt. Vista Road, and Glen Arm Road – began in October of last year.

The first phase involved the closure of Mt. Vista Road at Harford Road. The second phase saw Mt. Vista Road reopen as Glen Arm Road was then closed at Harford Road.

The State Highway Administration says that Glen Arm Road will be reopening soon, however, Mt. Vista Road will once again need to be closed.

Mt. Vista Road at Harford Road will be closed at approximately 9:00 a.m. on November 8 and remain closed for about 30 days.

Kinsley Construction and the SHA will be working diligently to finish the needed work on the Harford Road “islands” at that time.

“Harford Road is a popular route for drivers traveling between Harford and Baltimore counties, and Glen Arm Road and Mt. Vista Road are key connectors to rural communities,” said SHA District 4 Engineer Wendy Wolcott. “Reconstruction of this intersection to a roundabout will improve safety for all travelers. SHA appreciates drivers’ patience and caution during construction work and detours.”

The new roundabout should be complete by late fall.

Harford Road roundabout construction enters second phase

Road ClosedUPDATE: The roundabout has been completed and is now open to traffic.

Original story below…

——

Construction on the Harford Road roundabout in the Kingsville/Glen Arm area is about to enter its second phase.

Weather permitting, beginning at 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 22, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will temporarily close access to Glen Arm Road at MD 147 (Harford Road) as crews begin the final phase of the $3.7 roundabout installation at the Harford Road intersection with Glen Arm and Mt. Vista roads in Baltimore County.

Simultaneously, crews will re-open access to Mt. Vista Road at MD 147, which has been closed since last summer to construct the first half of the roundabout.

Glen Arm Road will be closed at Harford Road until early fall, weather permitting.

Northbound and southbound Harford Road will remain open to traffic during construction. MDOT SHA will post signs with the following detour route during the temporary Glen Arm Road closure: Harford Road to Long Green Pike to Glen Arm Road.

“Harford Road is a popular route for drivers traveling between Harford and Baltimore counties, and Glen Arm Road and Mt. Vista Road are key connectors to rural communities,” said SHA District 4 Engineer Wendy Wolcott. “Reconstruction of this intersection to a roundabout will improve safety for all travelers. SHA appreciates drivers’ patience and caution during construction work and detours.”

Commuters and commercial vehicle drivers should plan for extra travel time on Harford Road and the detour routes during the next year. The new roundabout should be complete by late fall, weather permitting.
