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.

As of late fall 2017, construction is in Phase 3:
Temporary roundabout will be in effect, Glen Arm Road is open and Mt. Vista Road is closed t Harford Road. Detour Route: Sunshine Avenue and US 1 (Belair Road).

Weather permitting, MDOT SHA's contractor Kinsley Construction is planning to have the Mt. Vista Road leg of the new roundabout re-opened to traffic on December 21, 2017 at approximately 3 p.m.

The re-opening of Mt. Vista Road will create the final traffic pattern for the new roundabout.

In spring 2018, contractor crews will return to the new roundabout to complete final paving work on Harford Road, Mt. Vista Road and Glen Arm Road within the project limits.

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)
