Stormwater Pump Station Upgrades
The Stormwater and Flood Mitigation Advisory Committee is diligently working on designs for upgrading the existing stormwater pump stations. The anticipated designs will be complete and work will commence in the coming months. Upgrading these pump stations will improve areas that currently experience stormwater and coastal flooding problems.
Parking space striping will begin this week on Chesapeake Avenue and on numbered streets from Chesapeake Avenue to Bay Avenue. The striping will identify the maximum number of available parking spaces in these areas and will also help to fit as many cars as possible for off-street parking. Work should be completed in one week, dependent upon the weather.
Raising Rt. 261 Between 9th Street and Anne Arundel County Line
UPDATE 3/2/2020: BGE is scheduled to start pole relocation early this month from the Anne Arundel County line to 9th Street. This work could take up to six weeks to complete. This is preliminary work that has to be done before any of the road contract work can be done. March 23, 2020 is the scheduled date for State Highway to give the contactor Notice to Proceed for this project. A public meeting will be scheduled in May to update the public on the sequence of construction. Road closure for the bridge work is still scheduled for after Labor Day 2020.
