Curbs, Gutters, Sidewalks Coming to Cowenton, Marks Says

Improvements are planned between Morning Dove Way and Honeybrook Way in Perry Hall.

Improvements are planned for Cowenton Avenue in Perry Hall, announced on Monday.

Curbs, gutters, and sidewalks are slated for a 300-foot stretch of Cowenton, between Morning Dove Way and Honeybrook Way, near , Marks stated in a email to constituents.

Weather permitting, the $250,000 project could begin late summer and continue into early fall. Marks thanked County Executive Kevin Kamenetz for supporting the project and urged "patience from drivers and residents during construction."

Does your street need improvements? Tell us where you live and what's needed in the comments.

Councilman Marks, Joni Court, off of Harford Road in Carney really needs to be repaved. Any idea how we make this happpen?

More great news out of the office of David Marks. Well done sir.

Thanks Councilman Marks-you are really doing a lot for this area! Please, please, please fix the sidewalks on the west side of Belair Road from Cedarside up to Forge Road. There is a section next to the old library where the handicap ramp is 2 inches below the gutter area, making it a severe tripping hazard for anyone walking north on Belair. (have done multiple face plants into the street there in the past while running). Also the 4" rise in the sidewalk in front of Rite Aid at Forge-very dangerous!

Mr. Marks, Please consider the sidewalks on the other side of Cowenton Ridge Park between Catron and the park. It would be a shame to miss the opportunity to fix both sections at the same time.

Sidewalks on Perry Hall Blvd. so we can walk to Honeygo Run, THE AVENUE, the mall and the library :)

I will do my best. I suspect there will be some substantial resurfacing in the Perry Hall area over the next two years as well.
David Marks July 18, 2012 at 11:29 PM
I will see what I can do. I am trying to get many smaller streets - as well as major corridors - addressed over the next two years.

Councilman Marks, I hope your list of projects includes Joppa Rd. at Honeygo - especially the west side. There is lots of foot traffic there with no pedestrian access (sidewalk) along Joppa Rd.

I live at Darnall and Dana Vista. We have a small section of curb (maybe 10') on the Darnall side and another section on the Dana Vista side. There is a storm drain on the Dana Vista side and the gutter is deteriorating. Who do I call to have it repaired/replaced? Why do certain areas have curbs and others don't? I have discovered over the years that people assume because we don't have curbs, it's okay to drive and park on our grass (including police cars). And because we are at the bottom a hill, the edges of the yard are always wet from runoff so the vehicles leave ruts when they drive/park there.

residents on chapel rd. are still walking in the drainage ditches waiting for some relief when do these roads get some attention people are complaining about a bad piece of sidewalk we take our life in our hands walking on this rd.!!!!!!
Roni July 19, 2012 at 12:22 PM
Yes! Love that sidewalks are being repaired but attention needs to be given to roads with no pedestrian access. Chapel is a death trap!

Halbert Ave off of Belair Rd across from the old Library - no sidewalks, no curbs, no storm drains. Road is about 100 yards long, and deteriorating badly with the sides of the road eroding away with storm water.
SLI July 19, 2012 at 03:02 PM
I didn't mean to complain about my deteriorating gutter when so many other areas don't have sidewalks for saftey. Who or what determines whether or not an area gets gutters and sidewalks? I'm sure at one point in time Perry Hall was considered a rural area but let's face it, it hasn't been rural for ages. Every new development gets gutters and sidewalks. What about all of the older areas that need them?
Honeygo Hal July 19, 2012 at 03:05 PM
Not only for pedestrians - some portions of Chapel Rd. are very narrow with no curbs, and drainage ditches - very challenging for two cars passing in opposite directions.
thomas gary likens July 19, 2012 at 04:45 PM
in reply to SLI the reason behind that is because the county requires the developer to put them in before he get his plan approved.
venu July 19, 2012 at 04:54 PM
I live on Cowenton Ave , right where the side walk begins. Very glad to here about the firm dates. So we can walk our children to the park. I hope in the next round, Panorama to Joppas X Cowenton Circle roads will be widened. I heard that some unserground drinage work is a pre requisite. Mr Marks thanks again.
