Roadwork to Begin to Improve Campus Traffic

Towson University is working with Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) to stage equipment on Cross Campus Drive to start a countywide project that will improve the reliability of power service to campus and nearby hospitals in the area. BGE will place electric cables underground where they're less susceptible to weather and traffic incidents. This process is set to start in January and continue through the Spring along the southern portion of Cross Campus Drive. Baltimore County's expansion project for Towsontown Boulevard to improve traffic flow includes adding a double left turning lane onto Osler Drive. The majority of the road work will occur between May and August. Towson University is working with BGE and Baltimore County to minimize disruptions to the campus and local community. Read more >
