NOTTINGHAM, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks on Monday announced that a significant traffic calming project had begun in the Seven Courts community.
The project, which was announced in November, entails the installation of six speed bumps and the construction of raised intersections along Hickoryhurst Drive and near Stoneway Place.
Shawn King, the president of the Seven Courts Area Citizens on Patrol Program, credited the work of volunteers who solicited support over the summer.
“Even during a pandemic, the COP did not stop,” King said. “I am enormously proud of our organization that is improving the Seven Courts and Oakhurst neighborhoods.”
The $60,000 project got under way on Monday, according to Councilman Marks.
“Many thanks to the Seven Courts Citizens on Patrol for its help gathering signatures in support,” said Councilman Marks.
