Some notes from the Webmaster

10 March 2020


GCC president Dan Scholfield The meeting was called to order by President Dan Scholfield, who led the assembled Crofton-area residents in the Pledge to the Flag. Dan then introduced the evening's guest speakers, three employees of the Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration

District 5 Engineer Corren Johnson The evening's main speaker, District 5 Engineer Corren Johnson took the floor and spoke. Her topic was "Maryland 450 Corridor Management and Drainage Improvements."

Engineer Johnson stated that their group has completed "hydraulic analysis" of twenty-one square miles of the Maryland 450 Corridor Management, identifying four sites near Bell Branch where the water that remains in the soil regularly creates problems for motor vehicles traveling the roadway.
The State Highway Administration's Corridor Management Task Force identified four key locations where they plan to replace the culverts to keep the road from collapsing. These are at the juncture of Hallmark Drive and Route 450, and further east at two points where the road is near the route of Bell Branch, and lastly east of the juncture of Pebblebrook Court and 450, before St. Stephen's Church Road meets Route 450.

MD 450 (Defense Highway) Corridor Management and Drainage Improvements

State Highway Administration's Deputy Director, Laura Ridler The State Highway Administration's Deputy Director, Laura Ridler, who heads the Office of Highway Development , rose to emphasize that in 2019, the Maryland Route 450 Corridor Management Task Force had initiated the necessary inspections, data collection, had a contractor attempt to clear the culverts in the project area, had coordinated with the BG&E Access Road, and completed a hydraulic model . In the first two months of 2020, topographic field surveys had been completed, a Bell Branch realignment plan had been designed, and efforts for right of entries had been initiated.

District 5 Engineer Johnson then said that the Maryland 450 Corridor Improvement tasks remaining included their waiting for all required permits and equipment to be obtained, which they hoped would arrive within the next three weeks.

Kellie Boulware of MDOT SHA The GCC Webmaster thanks Kellie Boulware for providing him information and links for this project.

Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen

The Greater Crofton Council (GCC) recently donated $10,000 to assist with the preservation, protection and promotion of the Historic Linthicum Walks farmhouse and grounds, located next to the Crofton Middle School. Pictured are Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen. Linthicum Walks dates to the mid-1700's and consists of a frame farmhouse built on a stone foundation, embodying the distinctive Tidewater architectural characteristics of early Maryland. The grounds also contain a family cemetery. The Friends of Linthicum Walks at Crofton will hold a General Membership meeting at the farmhouse later this Spring. Linthicum Walks is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the Maryland Historic Trust.
