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."

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
