Baltimore County begins a road project in July that engineers say will relieve traffic in many of Owings Mills’ residential streets.
Dolfield Boulevard will connect Reisterstown Road to Red Run Boulevard and the Owings Mills mall with a new, four-lane, divided highway, according to a Baltimore County Public Works press release. The road will also be pedestrian friendly, with built-in sidewalks.
This road, the northern-most part of Dolfield Boulevard, has been part of Baltimore County’s master plan for Owings Mills since the ’80s.
Dolfield Boulevard currently runs southwest of Reisterstown Road by Target in Owings Mills and cuts off at Featherbed Lane. The other part of Dolfield Boulevard, which runs north and south of Red Run Boulevard, cuts off at the intersection of Dolfield, Pleasant Hill Road and Church Road.
The $6.5 million project, a road more than a half-mile in length, will take about two years to complete, the release said. Traffic may be diverted during construction, but the county does not expect road closings.
