Gore Mill Bridge

Below is the cover page of a letter regarding Freeland community's position on the proposed bridge replacements on Gore Mill Road in Freeland, identified as Project # 2070277 in the 2011 Capital Budget.  You can also read the full letter with pictures.




To: Baltimore County Planning Board, Jeff Mayhew, Councilman Todd Huff, Dept of Public Works,

These bridge replacements should accomplish the following goals for this historic stretch of roadway:

  1. Provide only a means to accommodate current traffic of less than 150 vehicles per day.
  2. Provide a means to encourage lower vehicular speeds in proximity to these bridges by designing at least one of them as a one-lane bridge. We offer the Bailey Bridge as one low-cost example of how this could be accomplished.
  3. Design of bridges B-0138 and B-0137 should aesthetically compliment the landmark Gore Mill (c.1824).

We do not believe the proposed design accomplishes any of these goals.
