Traffic Calming Measures for Belair Drive and Beaverdale Lane
In the next few weeks, street construction activity will begin on Beaverdale Lane and Belair Drive. Workers will be installing traffic calming measures on both streets to reduce speeds and hopefully to discourage some cut through traffic from MD 450 and MD 3. Three speed humps will be installed on Beaverdale Lane. The Belair Drive work will be done in two phases. The first phase, from Beechtree Lane to Kenhill Drive will begin this spring and will include speed cushions, raised crosswalks, and stop signs at Kenhill Drive and at Stonybrook Drive. The Belair Drive Phase 1 Plan was first presented to stakeholders in 2017. Phase 2, which will address new measures from Kenhill Drive to Annapolis Road (MD 450), is still in the planning stages. Community input will be sought before it moves forward.
