The Baltimore and Annapolis Trail in Pasadena is likely to remain detoured for at least another 11 months.

County spokesman Matthew Diehl said Friday that he expects construction on the project to be finished by late December. The project, which will replace culverts and trail pavement washed out in last winter's blizzards, is 90% of the way through the design process, Diehl stated, mentioning that permit applications have been submitted for wetland-related construction.

The county is expecting to solicit bids this summer for the physical work, according to Diehl.

The closed section, which is less than a quarter-mile long, runs between Elvaton and Waterford roads, with trail traffic being diverted via Waterfod and Old Jumpers Hole roads.
