Harford County Executive Barry Glassman issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement by Gov. Larry Hogan on the Maryland Roadmap to Recovery:

“Harford County will continue reopening safely to the extent permitted by Gov. Hogan and will follow the additional steps allowed in Stage Two on the effective dates outlined in today’s announcement. I know that Harford County businesses are anxious to get started rebuilding their business. We will continue to interpret guidelines with as much flexibility as possible.”

For additional information and interpretive guidance please visit: https://governor.maryland.gov/recovery/

Because of the early and aggressive actions taken, we have not only flattened the curve—we have actually crushed the curve in Maryland. Every one of the important metrics in our state has continued to drop across the board in every jurisdiction across the state, which now has us in position to continue with additional Stage Two reopenings.

Effective this Friday, June 12 at 5:00 p.m., indoor dining will be able to resume at restaurants across the state at 50% capacity with distancing and strict public health requirements. Also effective this Friday at 5:00, outdoor amusements and rides, miniature golf, and go-kart tracks may resume with appropriate health and safety protocols. Capacity restrictions at outdoor pools will increase to 50%.

Effective one week later, beginning next Friday, June 19 at 5:00, indoor gyms and other studio fitness activities may begin to safely reopen at 50% capacity with strict health, distancing, and sanitization measures. Casinos, arcades, and malls will also be able to begin resuming operations with strict safety protocols.

The fight against this virus is far from over. In fact, now more than ever, as we begin to come into contact with more people, we must all continue to remain vigilant. Our health and economic recovery depends on all of us continuing to exercise personal responsibility in order to keep ourselves, our family members, our neighbors, and our coworkers safe.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON NEW PARK AND RIDE NEAR
I-95 INTERCHANGE AT MD 24/924 IN HARFORD COUNTY (Work begins June 15, with new 265-space Park and Ride lot slated for summer 2021 opening) -- As part of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) $1.1 billion program to relieve congestion and improve travel along the I-95 corridor in Harford County, the MDTA is constructing a new Park and Ride lot at the intersection of MD 924 and Woodsdale Road adjacent to the I-95 interchange at MD 24/MD 924 in the Abingdon area. This location will benefit commuters in Harford County and others using I-95.

The Park and Ride lot will consist of 265 spaces and will enhance bus and transit connections for the community. Access to the Park and Ride will be provided along MD 924 using a right-in and right-out entrance and exit. Additional full access will be provided via Woodsdale Road.

Construction is anticipated to begin June 15 and take approximately a year to complete. The Park and Ride is expected to be operational in summer 2021. Traffic operations on MD 924 and Woodsdale Road will be maintained, with some off peak daytime and nighttime closures during construction.

The MDTA is continuing work on this and other projects during the COVID-19 state of emergency while adhering to state and federal health and safety guidelines. The MDTA’s $1.1 billion Express Toll Lanes (ETL) Northbound Extension Program between MD 43 and north of MD 24 will alleviate delays and improve travel along northbound I-95 between Baltimore and Harford counties.

In addition to extending the northbound I-95 ETL, the program will replace several bridges that are more than 50 years old and will provide new noise walls for adjacent communities. The ETL Northbound Extension Program will be completed in multiple segments. For more information, visit mdta.maryland.gov/I95ETLNB/home.html.

Harford Streams - Green Choices. Healthy Streams.

As the joys of summer are quickly approaching us, many take this time to venture off into nature… and we are all for it! We just want to share some quick tips with you to ensure that we preserve our natural areas for generations to come!
1. Bring a reusable water bottle to prevent unnecessary plastic use and litter.
2. Think local- choose a local hike to explore or carpool with friends to conserve fuel consumption.
3. Take only pictures and leave only memories- this means leave no trace; no one should be able to know you were out in the woods.
4. Stay on the trail- your detour off a trail can wear down natural wildlife. One person going off a path can encourage others to do so as well.
5. Protect our water- if you have to relieve yourself, do so at least 200 feet away from a stream. Also, if you are hiking, make sure to not wash dishes close to the water and use biodegradable soap!

Let us know if you would enjoy some more helpful tips to be kind to nature while we adventure!
