Road project in Lutherville to affect turns
The State Highway Administration will temporarily prohibit motorists from making left turns from southbound York Road onto eastbound Seminary Avenue starting Monday while York Road is widened between Cavan Drive and Ridgely Road in Lutherville.
The traffic pattern is expected to last about eight weeks. Motorists traveling north on York Road to Seminary Avenue will not be affected.
The widening project will provide a center turn lane. At the same time, the county Department of Public Works is installing a 24-inch water main underneath the southbound lanes of York Road.
Weather permitting, both projects will be completed in the fall of next year.
