Good news. We’ve been told this morning that two “Do Not Block the Intersection” signs will be installed at the following intersections:
1. US 1 at Edgewood Road.
2. US 1 at Cherry Hill Road.
The signs will be installed by the end of August.
Many thanks to everyone who advocated and wrote to the SHA. We couldn’t do it without you.
Hopefully, with these installations, the traffic congestion at these two intersections will improve, if not gone. Similar signs have been in place on Route 1 at the Lakeland Rd, Campus drive, and Rosborough drive.
We’ve been asking for these signs for some time, probably even before the MD bill was brought up at the MD legislature. Unfortunately, those requests had been denied, citing a rule that the SHA hadn’t been applying consistently elsewhere. Fortunately, there has been a recent reorganization in the office that was dealing with our previous requests. We resubmitted a new request very recently and the new leadership accepted that this morning. Hope this clarifies.
On a related note, the MD legislative session ended recently, and unfortunately, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee did not take the “Do Not Block the Intersection” bill for a vote. This means the bill died for the second time. Thanks to everyone who took their time to write to the Senate committee.
