Baltimore County is beginning two major improvement projects on Towsontown Boulevard. The projects will be ongoing until March 2018 and will result in slower than normal traffic along Towsontown.
This summer, the county will widen Towsontown Boulevard to allow for additional turn lanes from Towsontown onto Osler Drive. New traffic signals will also be installed at the intersection of Towsontown and Osler. The work will begin in early June and is expected to end in October 2017.
In September, the county will begin installing a new sewer pipe underneath Towsontown Boulevard. Construction will stretch from Bosley Avenue west beyond Osler Drive. The center lanes of Towsontown will be excavated to make way for the installation. This project should be completed in March 2018.
Traffic Impact & Recommendations
This summer, we recommend the campus community avoid Towsontown Boulevard between Emerson Drive and University Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Drivers and shuttle users should allow extra traveling time and consider using one of the other access routes to campus, such as Stevenson Lane, York Road or Burke Avenue. Pedestrians should consider using interior campus walkways instead of the sidewalks adjacent to Towsontown Boulevard.
We will continue to share updates and information from the county as it becomes available. For questions about the project, contact Rahee Famili, the highway design section chief for Baltimore County’s Department of Public Works, at 410-887-3739 or email@example.com.
