This weekend the Maryland State Highway Administration will commence work on left-turn lanes on Route 32 at three locations. This much-needed project comes in the aftermath of the deaths of Sykesville, Maryland residents Brian Emery, Kyong Hae Kim and Vincent Woodward.
The new turn lanes will be at River Road, Day Road and Amberwoods Way. The goal is to complete this work by December 2009.
This busy stretch of roadway will also receive a new center lane to facilitate turns at Emory Farm Lane, Heritage Farms Court, Coventry Meadows Drive and Indian Hill Drive.
The looming long-term question, when will Route 32 be expanded to four through lanes to handle the ever-increasing volume of traffic?
