Design Work Begins On Route 29

WBAL reports that the state highway administration is kicking off work that had been put on hold when the economy went south:

The SHA started a project to fix that in 2005, but when the economy took a downturn in 2008, they had to abandon it. They're currently picking it up again, and a big part of the project is widening the road to three lanes from Middle Patuxent River to just south of Route 175.

"It's going to help out. Obviously, it's going to create more space, which is always good," said driver Chris Eckford.

The project also includes improving the intersection at River's Edge Road, resurfacing the pavement and constructing noise barriers where needed.

The project isn't funded for construction yet. Officials are in the design phase, which is expected to take two to three years.
