Route 152 congestion, safety focus of Fallston meeting on Sept. 24

Traffic safety and congestion along Route 152 will be discussed at the next Fallston Community Council meeting this Tuesday evening, Sept. 24.

Dave Williams, the community council chairman, said the State Highway Administration is sending a representative to discuss findings of a study the agency conducted earlier this year and some improvements that have been made as a result.

Williams said he and other community leaders approached SHA after a number of horrific accidents occurred last year along the highway that links Fallston to I-95 and is one of Harford's most congested roads.

Williams said he expects most of the discussions at the meeting to focus on the Route 152 situation. He said increased public awareness, coupled with some minor SHA improvements, appear to have helped lower the accident rate this year, noting, however, that more effort will be needed in the future.

"It's not getting any less congested," he said.

The meeting, which is open to the public, begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Fallston Fire Station at 2201 Carrs Mill Road.
