Six Miles of Roadway in Rodgers Forge and Gaywood to be Resurfaced

From Councilman David Marks: I am happy to announce that over the next two years, Baltimore County will resurface thirteen routes in Rodgers Forge and Gaywood. The total project will improve about six miles. It is one of the most comprehensive road resurfacing plans for any major neighborhood in the Fifth District, and the largest in Towson.

Baltimore County will resurface Blenheim, Dorking, Dumbarton, Dunkirk, Gaywood, Glen Argyle, Heathfield, Hopkins, Midhurst, Murdock, Overbrook, and Pinehurst Roads, as well as Regester Avenue.

Some streets will be resurfaced earlier than others. Regester Avenue and Glen Argyle and Heathfield Roads will be resurfaced first. On the other streets, the county plans to make upgrades to the sewer lines, so that will occur later.

When I know a more definite timeline, I will alert the Rodgers Forge Community Association so any questions can be answered. I am also working to improve crossings as we work to make Rodgers Forge more pedestrian-friendly. While the state government has slashed the money we receive for road repairs, Baltimore County will invest an additional $20 million in road resurfacing over the next two years. Much of this funding will go toward Towson's aging road network. In addition to Rodgers Forge, neighborhood streets in West Towson, Towson Manor Village, and Anneslie will be improved over the next two years. I thank the County Executive for his support of these projects.

County Councilman David Marks
