MD 0147 HARFORD ROAD AT GLEN ARM/ MT VISTA ROAD
Project Name:
MD 147, Harford Road

Location of Project:
AT GLEN ARM/ MT VISTA ROAD

Description:
Construct roundabout on MD 147 at Glen Arm / Mt. Vista Roads.
 
Scope:
In October 2016, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) began a $3.7 million project to construct a roundabout at the Harford Road (MD 147) intersection with Glen Arm Road and Mt. Vista Road in Glen Arm.

The purpose of this project is to reduce congestion and enhance safety at the intersection. During the evening peak rush hour, Glen Arm Road and Mt. Vista Road experience long queues and delays.

The roundabout will also enhance safety by reducing the number of conflict points at the intersection and slowing traffic as it approaches the intersection. Since SHA started constructing roundabouts in 1994, there have been zero intersection-related fatalities.

The project will be constructed in three phases; each phase will require a long-term detour of either the Mt. Vista Road or Glen Arm Road legs of the intersection. Northbound and southbound Harford Road will remain open to traffic during construction. SHA’s contractor, Kinsley Construction, Inc. of Timonium, will use portable digital message signs in the vicinity of the intersection to alert motorists of long-term closures of Mt. Vista Road or Glen Arm Road at Harford Road. Detour routes will be posted.

Although Harford Road will be open during construction, motorists traveling on Harford Road within the Glen Arm, Kingsville, Long Green, and Fork communities should expect the following driving conditions during the roundabout construction:

• A closure and detour of either the Mt. Vista Road or Glen Arm Road legs of the four-way intersection during 3 phases of construction.

Phase 1:
Mt. Vista Road closed at Harford Road (began October 5, 2016 and in effect until June 22, 2017)
Detour Route: Sunshine Avenue and Belair Road

Phase 2:
Glen Arm Road closed at Harford Road (begins June 22, 2017 and will be in effect for approximately 3 months)
Detour Route: Long Green Pike and Fork Road

Phase 3:
Temporary roundabout will be in place, Glen Arm Road will re-open and Mt. Vista Road will be closed at Harford Road (begins on or after October 20, 2017 and will be in effect 3 - 4 weeks). Detour Route: Sunshine Avenue and US 1 (Belair Road)

Lane Closures and Flagging Operations on Harford Road:

• Temporary daytime lane closures on Harford Road in the vicinity of the Glen Arm Road/Mt. Vista Road intersection (9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday)

• Temporary flagging operations controlling two-way traffic on Harford Road (9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday)

The new roundabout construction should be complete late fall 2017, weather permitting. Final paving work will be done spring 2018
