County:Harford Project Number:HA334_22
MD 0024 ROCKS ROAD SECTION G: 700 FT SOUTH OF SHARON ROAD TO 2150 FT SOUTH OF SHARON ROAD
Status
9/26/2017The DNR and SHA preferred option; Option 5, has reached 30% design. The worst case limit of disturbance is being finalized to begin the formal NEPA process. Right-of-way needs will then be developed after coordination with the utility companies. The design will then work towards progressing to the next milestone at 60% design.

Right-of-way needs will then be developed after coordination with the utility companies. The design will then work towards progressing to the next milestone at 60% design.
 
2/24/2017There has been progress towards 30% design on the DNR and SHA preferred option; Option 5. Project is anticipated to reach 30% design completion by April 2017. It is anticipated that after 30% design is complete a worst case limit of disturbance will be identified.
 
11/28/2016On November 9, 2016, SHA attended the Deer Creek Scenic River Advisory Board meeting to discuss Options 1-5. Initial questions were addressed during the meeting. Further comments from the Advisory Board are anticipated by December 9, 2016
 
9/21/2016A mussel survey was conducted in Section G at the beginning of September to decide if a mussel relocation would be necessary during construction. This mussel survey was requested based on the presence of mussels in Section A. After studying Section G, DNR determined that there would be no need to do a mussel relocation during the construction of Section G. This means that no additional construction time will be required due to mussels.
 
7/21/20166/28/16 - SHA presented Option 5 to The Department of Natural Resources. They promised to provide comments and information about a preferred alternative before the Interagency Meeting on 7/20/16.
7/18/16 - DNR agreed with SHA that the preferred alternative is Option 5 (with contingencies).
7/20/16, the MD 24 Section G team presented Option 5 at the Interagency Meeting. DNR continues to support Option 5 as we move forward to 30% Design.

 
2/10/2016A public meeting was held on December 1, 2015, to present the four project alternatives to the public. SHA will meet with the project advisory committee in Spring 2016. The project is funded for Preliminary Engineering. It is not currently funded for Right-of Way Acquisition, Utility Relocations, or Construction.
 
10/13/2015SHA presented the concept design alternatives to environmental agencies in September 2015, to determine the best ways to minimize the environmental impacts to the park and the creek. SHA will hold a public meeting this Winter 2015, to present the alternatives to the public.
 
8/12/2015SHA has prepared concept design alternatives, and will present them to environmental agencies this Fall 2015, to determine the best ways to minimize the environmental impacts to the park and the creek. Once the preferred alternative has been established, SHA will present to the task force, and initiate project design.
 
5/21/2015SHA is evaluating concept design alternatives this Spring 2015, to determine the best ways to minimize the environmental impacts to the park and the creek. Once the preferred alternative has been established, SHA will present to the task force, and initiate project design.
 
3/13/2015SHA is evaluating concept design alternatives this Winter/Spring 2015, to determine the best way to address the issues associated with Section G, and to find ways to minimize the environmental impacts to the park and the creek. Once the preferred alternative has been established, SHA will present to the task force, and initiate project design.
 
1/6/2015SHA is evaluating concept design alternatives this Winter/Spring 2015, to determine the best way to address the issues associated with Section G, and to find ways to minimize the environmental impacts to the park and the creek. Once the preferred alternative has been established, SHA will present to the task force, and initiate project design.
 
12/6/2013While SHA continues working on final design for Section A, all design activities for Section G have been placed on hold. The funding for design, right-of-way and construction for Section G has been deferred.
 
7/29/2011The Maryland State Highway Administration District 4 Office Maintenance Division will be performing roadway patching operations on MD 24 (Rocks Road) from Jarretsville Road to Cherry Hill Road. This roadway maintenance work is anticipated to begin in August.

This work is to address the safety issues with roadway settlement, potholes and rideability, and is not part of SHA┬┐s proposed slope stabilization projects for MD 24.

All road work will be performed by Gray and Son Inc. of Timonium, Maryland, between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, with possible Saturday hours from 6 A.M to 2 P.M. Sections of MD 24 may be reduced to one lane within the project limits during the work time with flagpersons to guide motorists through the work zone. Weather permitting, this highway maintenance work should be complete in by early October.

If you have any questions regarding this project along MD 24, please contact Mr. Mike Wetzel or Mr. Michael Boardwine at the SHA District 4 Office - Maintenance Division. They can be reached at 410-229-2360, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email at shadistrict4@sha.state.md.us
 
6/14/2011Per the feedback received from May 25 Advisory Committee Meeting, it is decided to perform a further engineering investigation for Option 2 - Shifting MD 24 road approx. 10 feet away from the stream and construct proper slope revetment along the embankment in Section G. All three concept options were posted in "Document-Alternative Public Workshop" Section.
 
3/25/2011The next Advisory Committee meeting is scheduled on April 6, 2011 at 6:30pm in Room 4 at the McFaul Activities Center, 525 West MacPhail Road, Bel Air. At this meeting, the SHA will share our findings of the detailed morphology studies and seismic refraction surveys completed in the past nine months.
 
1/31/2011The field work has been completed as scheduled. The design team continues working on the detailed geomorphology study and evaluating the design alternatives. The next Advisory Committee meeting is anticipated to be held in winter/spring 2011.
