WHAT: 
       
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) and Allegany County Department of Public Works are hosting a public informational meeting regarding parking on MD 36 (Mount Savage Road) in Mount Savage.

WHEN:
        
Tuesday, March 18 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.                     

WHERE:  
   
Mt. Savage School – Cafeteria
13201 New School Road, NW
Mount Savage, MD 21545

WHY:
           
SHA and Allegany County Department of Public Works officials will present a plan for alternative parking to help alleviate the congestion and reduced roadway resulting from on-street parking. Motorists who park along MD 36 are encouraged to attend to view the plan and provide comments.

The proposed parking changes would be implemented as part of an upcoming roadway resurfacing project scheduled for this spring on MD 36 in Mount Savage. On-street parking has caused problems with drivers having to enter the opposing lane of traffic to get by and for emergency vehicles trying to fit between the parked vehicles. SHA worked with Allegany County to develop a proposed alternative to on-street parking.

More information about the project is available by contacting Mr. Barry Ritchie, SHA Engineering Systems Team Chief, by phone at 301-729-8426, toll free at 800-760-7138, or by e-mail at britchie@sha.state.md.us.
