The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) recently began a new one million dollar resurfacing project to improve safety and traffic operations along one mile of MD 45 (York Road) between Towsontown Boulevard and Stevenson Lane in Towson.

Crews are upgrading sections of curb, gutter, sidewalk and ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards; cleaning and repairing inlets and drainage pipes; and installing underground and overhead traffic detectors at intersections where needed.  Later this  summer crews will patch, grind and resurface this section of York Road.

SHA will shift traffic and close a lane along York Road during construction to ensure the safety of travelers and construction crews.  Single lane closures and traffic pattern shifts may occur at any time on York Road between Stevenson Lane and Cross Campus Drive.  SHA will notify motorists in advance of closures and traffic shifts.

The state’s contractor for the York Road project is American Infrastructure of Fallston. Weather permitting, the entire project will be complete fall 2012.  Citizens with questions about the project may contact SHA’s District Four Office – Construction Division at 410-229-2420, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email:
