DOT wins award for 26th Street work

Awards being received

The Department of Transportation is honored and pleased to announce the recognition of a prestigious award presented by the County Engineer Association of Maryland (CEAM) during their annual meeting in Ocean City, Maryland.

The Department of Transportation received the highest honor for the “Large Project of the Year” in recognition of an outstanding project that addresses the needs of the citizens, provide a cost effective solution and demonstrates innovative engineering and construction.  The award was given for the 26th Street Emergency Repairs and Retaining Wall Reconstruction.

On April 30, 2014 at approximately 4:15 p.m. a portion of a retaining wall along the south side of 26th Street collapsed onto CSX tracks below between Charles and St. Paul Streets.  Debris and soil fell onto the CSX tracks, which damaged the railways and stopped all train traffic in the area.  Utility lines including waste water and gas lines were also damaged.  Residents were evacuated from their homes and Charles Street was closed to traffic between 25th and 27th Streets.   We completed the entire project in a little over a year. “We are proud to receive this honor for our relentless work on the 26th Street retaining wall which was completed in approximately 8 months” says Director William Johnson.  
 
The County of Engineer Association of Maryland (CEAM) is an organization that provides a forum for new ideas and is an advocate for the infrastructure needs of the entire state.  It is the collective voice of those who are responsible for the basic services of government and whose jobs affect the health and safety of every citizen.  The Association promotes professional education and an adherence to the highest standards of engineering, construction, management, and public policy.  It maintains an active presence in the State capital, placing its public trust above all considerations, whether partisan or monetary.

Roland Avenue Cycle Track Fact Sheet

The resurfacing project along Roland Avenue from Cold Spring Lane to Northern Parkway provides a great opportunity to add this much needed infrastructure to improve the safety of the street for all users.

I-95 Roadwork South of the Ft. McHenry Tunnel Will Cause Congestion in Downtown Baltimore

The Maryland Transportation Authority is scheduled to resume major construction along mainline I-95 and ramps between the Fort McHenry Tunnel and Caton Avenue in Baltimore City. The $64 million preservation project was launched in March, 2014 and construction will continue through the fall of 2015.

I-95 Roadwork Alternate Route Map 1

o  When leaving the city via I-95, motorists are advised to enter I-95 beyond the congested area.  This would mean entering northbound I-95 from Key Highway or better yet north of the tunnel via Pulaski Highway or Boston Street.  For southbound I-95 the best places to enter are Caton Avenue, Washington Blvd, or  Russell Street.

I-95 Roadwork Alternate Route Map 2

o  Those who continue to use I-95 to enter Baltimore City should exit I-95 prior to the congested area.  For northbound I-95 this would mean exiting at Caton Avenue, Washington Blvd or Russell Street.  For southbound I-95, it means exiting prior to the tunnel and using Pulaski Highway, O’Donnell St/Boston Street or exiting at Key Highway.

26th Street Incident

26th Street Image

At approximately 4:15 on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 the retaining wall along the south side of 26th Street between Charles and St. Paul Streets collapsed onto the CSX tracks below A variety of city agencies including CSX personnel immediately responded to the scene. Debris and soil fell onto the CSX tracks, which damaged the railway and stopped all train traffic in this area. Utility lines including water, waste water, and gas lines were also damaged. Residents along this stretch of 26th Street were evacuated from homes as a precautionary measure and the roadway was closed to traffic.

On May 3rd installation of a temporary wall began. By June 7th, 65 piles had been installed, stabilizing the ground and allowed the residents to re-occupy their homes. The damaged utility lines had either been replaced or temporarily by-passed.

On June 9th, excavation work began to remove the debris and soil so that work could begin to reconstruct the permanent wall. Excavation is now nearly complete and we will be pouring the concrete for the first part of the foundation of the new permanent wall by the end of this week. This now begins the process of reconstructing the permanent wall.
