Parking Improves In Mount Savage

October 31st, 2014 by WCBC Radio

In conjunction with the opening of a new public parking lot off of Mount Savage Road (MD 36) in the Allegany County town of Mount Savage, the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) announces that on-street parking on Mount Savage Road is no longer permitted starting Friday, October 31.A spokesman for the SHA said there is now a new parking area available….

SHA District Engineer Anthony Crawford said that with vehicles parked on the road, there was only enough room for one lane of traffic on Mount Savage Road. He added that Allegany County and area law enforcement supported a parking lot alternative to allow for two-way traffic, improve emergency vehicle response time, school bus movement, snow removal operations, and safe and efficient traffic flow. The start of the no-parking restriction (today) on Friday will coincide with the opening of the new parking lot. SHA placed electronic message boards and distributed flyers announcing the change and Maryland State Police will enforce the no parking zone and the speed limit over the next few weeks. The change follows the completion of an $800,000 SHA resurfacing project on Mount Savage Road this summer. SHA and Allegany County held a public meeting about the parking change in March.
