Baltimore County is updating infrastructure and creating new turn lanes onto Osler Drive.
Baltimore County is improving Towsontown Boulevard infrastructure and traffic flow through two projects which will conclude in summer 2018. The first project to widen the roadway to allow for additional turn lanes from Towsontown onto Osler Drive began in spring 2017 and finished in December 2017. New traffic signals were installed at the intersection of Towsontown and Osler.
The second project involves installing a new sewer pipe underneath Towsontown Boulevard. Construction began in late January 2018 starting from west Osler to progress eastward toward Burke Avenue. The center lanes of Towsontown will be excavated to make way for the installation. This project will be ongoing until summer 2018.
We recommend avoiding Towsontown Boulevard between Emerson Drive and University Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the duration of the projects. Drivers and shuttle users should allow extra travel time and consider using alternate access routes such as Stevenson Lane, York Road or Burke Avenue. As the sewer work progresses through Osler/Towsontown intersection, traffic will get more challenging. Some delays should be anticipated. We also expect construction to take place overnight once the pipeline installations get near the Osler and Towsontown Boulevard intersection.
Pedestrians should consider using interior campus walkways instead of the sidewalks adjacent to Towsontown Boulevard.
Construction update: ongoing roadwork - 8/28/17
