Towson Roundabout Scheduled Closures

Post date: Aug 14, 2011 2:55:46 PM

The following was forwarded from our Maryland State Delegate Steve Lafferty:

The State Highway Administration plans to close the Towson Roundabout to all traffic Sunday, August 21 and Sunday, August 28 to allow crews to mill and resurface all pavement within the roundabout. The pavement work is part of SHA's $632,000 project to improve safety and traffic operations at the roundabout.

Towson Roundabout Closure Schedule:

12:01 a.m. Sunday, August 21 until 5 a.m. Monday August 22 - milling

12:01 a.m. Sunday, August 28 until 5 a.m. Monday August 29 - paving

Variable message signs and detour signs will be posted on the streets approaching the Towson Roundabout: MD 45 (York Road); MD 146 (Dulaney Valley Road), Joppa Road and Allegheny Avenue.

SHA encourages motorists traveling on York Road between I-695 and Baltimore City to plan for extra travel time and to use the Towson Bypass (Bosley Avenue/West Burke Avenue) or MD 139 (Charles Street) for through trips. Maryland Transit Administration bus riders should also plan for extra travel time and bus route diversions during the roundabout closure. In case of inclement weather, the Towson Roundabout pavement work will be done on the next possible Sunday after the Labor Day holiday weekend (Sunday, September 11 or Sunday, September 18) with detours in effect.
