Section Of York Road Near Bosley Ave. To Close Until Late April
TOWSON - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOTSHA) announced on Tuesday that sections of York road will be closed 24 hours a day until late April.
According to MDOTSHA, the closure is to accommodate BGE preventative maintenance work on underground electric transmission cables beneath York Road.
“This work supports BGE’s Shawan Road Substation as part of BGE’s multi-year Electric Reliability Upgrade Project,” MDOT said in a press release.
Starting Wednesday and running through Friday, BGE contractors will install concrete barriers and traffic barrels to create a utility work zone along northbound York Road just north of Bosley Avenue.
Once the barriers are in place, the center two-way turn lane and the left lane along northbound York Road between Bosley Avenue and north of Hillside Avenue will be closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until the project is completed. Southbound lanes of York Road will remain open.
The following turns will be prohibited in the work zone area:
- left turns to and from the Yorkridge Center North Business Complex on York Road,
- left turns from Matthews Avenue to southbound York Road and
- left turns from Warren Place/Cockeysville Senior Center to southbound York Road.
The State Highway Administration said drivers should expect delays in the area until the work is completed. According to BGE, the project is expected to be finished by mid-April.
