MIDDLE RIVER, MD—The Maryland State Highway Administration will hold a community meeting to present recommendations from a study that examined safety concerns along Eastern Avenue in Middle River.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2024 at 7 p.m. at the Bowleys Quarters Improvement Association hall (1124 Bowleys Quarters Road).

Senator J.B. Jennings, Delegates Ryan Nawrocki and Kathy Szeliga, and Councilman David Marks requested the review, which became even more imperative after a series of crashes this spring.

“We thank the State Highway Administration for conducting this study, and we look forward to their presentation to the Middle River community,” said Senator Jennings.

“Safety must always be a priority for state and local governments,” added Delegate Nawrocki. “It’s why we have worked on other initiatives such as modifications to the signals here.”

“The community’s perspective is always important, which is why we have consistently supported public participation when traffic changes are made,” added Delegate Szeliga.

“Our work to preserve the former C.P. Crane property as open space should lighten traffic here,” said Councilman Marks. “I would also like to acknowledge the Police Department and local residents like David Conrad for all their work.”
