ROAD CLOSURE IN LOCH RAVEN

ROAD CLOSURE IN LOCH RAVEN


   Loch Raven Drive between Providence Rd. and Morgan Mill Rd. is closed to ALL.....
   motor vehicles, bicycles, runners and walkers. This is due to a damaged culvert
   (drainage ditch) under the roadway which must be repaired. I spoke with someone from
   the Baltimore City "Environnmental Police Department" who reported that preliminary
   work has begun on this project which will probably require prolonged repair time.

Work has started on culvert repair.
As of today 8/17/2020 they are still allowing bicycles to pass between work trucks.

I rode through there today, and I asked the work people if bikes would be
allowed through while the actual repairs were in progress. They said 'sure,
bikes will be able to pass through while we're working on this thing'.

Re: ROAD CLOSURE IN LOCH RAVEN

Regarding the Road Closure in Loch Raven, I passed through today (Tues, Aug 18) at 2:30 pm without seeing any sign of construction.  The road has a dip in the construction area.  If you are travelling on the downhill from Providence Rd, SLOW DOWN and watch for cracks, dips, etc at the bottom of the hill.  It's possible that rain or resumed construction could make this area above the damaged culvert more hazardous.  Be prepared to dismount if necessary. 

    Loch Raven was closed to cars today, between Providence Rd and Morgan Mill Rd, but bikes can use the curb cut, as we do on weekends when this portion of Loch Raven is closed to motor vehicles.  It appears that more work will need to be done before Loch Raven can be reopened to motor vehicles.  I can only guess why repair personnel weren't working today.  The city has been troubled by a large number of public works personnel being sick or unavailable.  Also, there's more trash and recycling items than normal.  It's possible the city may have pulled workers off this project to pick up trash and recycling ; and construction may resume shortly.

Re: ROAD CLOSURE IN LOCH RAVEN

On Wed, Nov 4 the City resumed working on the washout/dip on the portion of Loch Raven Drive at the start of the climb to reach Providence Rd.  CREWS ACTIVELY WORKING MEANS THAT BIKES CAN NO LONGER GET through THIS washout.  You may recall that the city first closed Loch Raven between Providence Rd and Morgan Mill Rd in early Aug, but didn't make repairs until now.  Bikes could  previously still get through.  But now that the City is actively making repairs, bikes can't get through - at least not on weekdays.  You may be able to get through on weekends, provided crews aren't working overtime.  Once the repairs are completed, access should improve.
