Route 1 sidewalk in north College Park (the Gazette)

Representatives from the State Highway Administration (SHA) came to last night’s Council worksession to talk about the sidewalk retrofit program in north College Park (from MD 193 to I-495).

The SHA representative told us the project can begin as early as within a year and it will take about 6 months to complete. This means the sidewalk can possibly be built by the end of next year.

The SHA will start working with the business owners on both sides of Route 1 to discuss

In another good news, the SHA identified a funding source to build the retaining wall between Erie St and Fox St. This means that we will have continuous ADA complaint sidewalk on both sides of Route 1 in north College Park.
