I would like them to leave it alone. It fine the way it is now.

Someone needs to look at Harford Road and devise a speed control plan to make Harford Road safer between Joppa and the Beltway. Crossing Harford Road safely is impossible. There are blind spots for motorists turning onto Harford Road that need to be addressed too.

I hope they address how awful it is to sit along Joppa Road in the mornings! It backs up daily from Joppa/Harford to the intersection at Joppa/Magledt. It's an awful way to start off the morning sitting thru green lights on Magledt just to get onto Joppa only to inch your way along past Harford Road.

How about the absolute nightmare that the private school causes on Harford Rd every morning, between Putty Hill intersection and the 695 ramps? Everyone uses the Church lot across the street to take shortcuts/turn around, too, which only makes it worse. The current system in place adds at least 5 minutes to travel in the morning, just trying to get from the Putty Hill intersection to the 695 ramp.

I hope they also discuss how no one cuts the grass around the new signs at Harford and 695. Looks terrible. Traffic seems to flow fine there now after the recent changes
