Cross Road, between Honeygo Boulevard and Chapel Road, will close Jan. 23 to Feb. 15 for utility construction on the Reserve at Camp Chapel housing development, County Councilman David Marks announced.
Local traffic will be allowed. Baltimore County Public Schools have also been notified and will alert parents to any bus changes, Marks stated in an email.
The developer will also complete some improvements to Cross Road, including widening and repaving, during this time, Marks added.
While the Reserve at Camp Chapel housing development gained approval about four years ago, construction was held until this winter due to the struggling economy, Patch reported.
A representative of developer D.R. Horton said construction of homes will likely begin in January, and that the development should be completed by the spring.
The planned neighborhood is named after a former horse farm and the historic Camp Chapel United Methodist Church nearby.
Projected new residents will add approximately nine students to Gunpowder Elementary School, six students to Perry Hall Middle School and seven students to Perry Hall High School, according to a Baltimore County school impact analysis document dated July 19, 2006, provided by the Baltimore County Department of Planning.
