Beginning June 19, southbound York Road will be closed in Hunt Valley just north of Shawan Road through at least August 15th.

This is to repair the bridge over Western Run.

Nighttime will have northbound closures as well.

Traffic will be directed from Belfast Road to 83 South to Shawan Road. This will be the only straight way, besides either taking Falls Rd or Jarrettsville Pike/Dulaney Valley Rd, to get from anywhere North of the bridge to anyplace south of the bridge.

This will make things especially difficult for those who live in Sparks, like the many who live in Loveton Farms, as they will have to travel north to go south.

For more information, here is the link to the State Highway Administration‘s site.

For those who live in Sparks, be prepared for delays and heavy traffic heading south. For those who live in Monkton and Parkton and points north, be prepared that the area on 83 Southbound will be heavier and slower than usual.
