BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) and the Baltimore County Department of Public Works (DPW) are beginning a project that will improve safety and drainage on MD 140 (Reisterstown Road) in Baltimore County.

  • Roadway excavation and installation of new 16-foot and 20-foot water transmission mains
  • Replacement and repair of highway drainage inlets and pipes
  • Reconstruction of concrete curb and gutter
