Perry Hall in Line for Pothole Patching

Work will begin in the coming months, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks reported.

The winter is officially over but bumps in the road remain, literally, as potholes have cropped up around the state.

On Wednesday, Gov. Martin O'Malley announced that every jurisdiction in Maryland had applied for and was being granted funding to repair roads damaged by the winter weather.

A total of $10 million for the entire state was available from Maryland's Transportation Trust Fund.

Baltimore County was slated to receive the most funding of any jurisdiction, at $1,150,721. It had more than 2,600 miles' worth of roads to repair, including area in Perry Hall.

In fact, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks reported Wednesday that Perry Hall's Klausmier Road is scheduled for repairs this summer.

The repairs are likely to happen in June, and signs will be posted to notify residents before work begins, Marks said.

He noted that driveways may only be blocked for approximately 30 minutes during the process.

"I want to work on long-term improvements to this corridor," Marks said, "but am happy the county is making these repairs to make travel safer in the immediate future."
