New Lane Lines To Direct Honeygo Park Traffic

County Councilman David Marks requested the new exit lane lines in response to traffic outside the Perry Hall park.

Ever been stuck behind a long line of cars leaving Honeygo Run Regional Park?

County Councilman David Marks hopes new painted lines at the park's access point along Honeygo Boulevard will make the experience a little easier to bear.

Marks stated in an email to Patch:

Right now, there are often backups as motorists leave Honeygo Park because some vehicles stop in a position that cannot be bypassed on the righthand side.

To remedy this, the county will paint two 10.5-foot wide exit lanes from Honeygo Park to Honeygo Boulevard, as well as a 10.5-foot wide entrance lane. By clearly marking the lanes, there will hopefully be fewer backups for everyone who uses Honeygo Park, particularly when it is heavily used for recreation council events.

Baltimore County recently approved Marks' request for the new lines. The project is expected to be finished by the end of the year, he said.

I bet a bunch of idiots will still turn left from the right. This is my biggest complaint on the road, and it seems like more then half of people make lefts from the right. Making a right onto Belair Rd. from Klausmier is the worst, always some moron making a left from the right thus backing up traffic for the people turning right for about 10 cars. Buy anyhow thanks Councilman for trying to alleviate this problem. Anyway we can get a line on Klasmier?

Thank you Councilman. People making a left and blocking off the drivers trying to make a right causes some unnecessary traffic jams when trying to leave the park. There are times when I have sat for about 20 minutes trying to leave after sporting events have ended. Hopefully the lanes will help out.

With the number of accidents caused at this intersection because of the hill and speeding cars it should be a right turn only exit with a merge lane. Adding two lanes will only make it more unsafe for people making a left turn because the car in the right lane will block there view.

What about fixing the track around this park. The track is fine until you get to the sidewalk on Honeygo Blvd where it goes down to half its size and children on bikes are going down a hill toward traffic with no guard rail (I have seen some close calls). Why can’t the track continue straight plus have an exit to the sidewalk

Hopefully they remember to paint arrows in the lanes. I've noticed down here by my work where they painted lanes in but no arrows it doesn't seem to make a difference. People still go straight from the turn lane and there are just as many accidents as before.

I agree Mike, I always get nervous when I walk there when I see kids along the sidewalk. The margin for error there is minuscule.

Its about time! If I get one more soccer mom in the right lane at 6pm turning left blocking all the dam traffic...ug!
You October 27, 2012 at 12:44 PM
Yup I skip the sidewalk area with my dog and cut across the grass behind the baseball field. Cars are going very fast and only 1 or 2 feet from the sidewalk.

Ryan, I do not believe there is enough space for a left and right turning car from Klausmier unless both cars are compact, and even then it's a tight squeeze. I try to avoid turning left there altogether at peak times by either going out via Joppa or Butler where there are traffic signals. Chances are good you end up stuck behind a suv.

It is not hard folks, put up a no left turn sign from 7-9 AM and 4-6 PM M-F on Klausmeier and Pinedale.
