Harford Bridge Reopens
PERRY HALL - The Harford Bridge reopened to traffic on October 1, following a complete demolition and remodel. construction of the new bridge began in November 2018, and ever since, Perry Hall has been without one of its main arteries into Baltimore City.
Residents now have the opportunity to avoid some of the frequently heavy traffic on Bel Air road by using this new lifeline into Baltimore City.
The bridge bisects the beautiful Herring Run Park and has long been a destination for those looking to enjoy peace, quiet, and the outdoors.
The City of Baltimore Department of Transportation (BDoT) has installed a variety of new amenities including an updated walking path underneath the bridge, bike lanes, and a new bus lane.
BDoT also added a “greenway trail” which runs adjacent to the new bridge. According to greenways.com, a national advocate for the installation of greenways, they can help protect the environment.
“Greenways, as vegetated buffers protect natural habitats, improve water quality and reduce the impacts of flooding in floodplain areas.”
Hopefully, the completion of this project will redirect some of the traffic on Bel Air road to Harford road and alleviate some of the headaches for commuters from Perry Hall.
