New Lane Lines To Direct Honeygo Park Traffic

County Councilman David Marks requested the new exit lane lines in response to traffic outside the Perry Hall park.

Ever been stuck behind a long line of cars leaving Honeygo Run Regional Park?

County Councilman David Marks hopes new painted lines at the park's access point along Honeygo Boulevard will make the experience a little easier to bear.

Marks stated in an email to Patch:

Right now, there are often backups as motorists leave Honeygo Park because some vehicles stop in a position that cannot be bypassed on the righthand side.

To remedy this, the county will paint two 10.5-foot wide exit lanes from Honeygo Park to Honeygo Boulevard, as well as a 10.5-foot wide entrance lane. By clearly marking the lanes, there will hopefully be fewer backups for everyone who uses Honeygo Park, particularly when it is heavily used for recreation council events.

Baltimore County recently approved Marks' request for the new lines. The project is expected to be finished by the end of the year, he said.

I agree Mike, I always get nervous when I walk there when I see kids along the sidewalk. The margin for error there is minuscule.

Its about time! If I get one more soccer mom in the right lane at 6pm turning left blocking all the dam traffic...ug!

Yup I skip the sidewalk area with my dog and cut across the grass behind the baseball field. Cars are going very fast and only 1 or 2 feet from the sidewalk.

Ryan, I do not believe there is enough space for a left and right turning car from Klausmier unless both cars are compact, and even then it's a tight squeeze. I try to avoid turning left there altogether at peak times by either going out via Joppa or Butler where there are traffic signals. Chances are good you end up stuck behind a suv.

It is not hard folks, put up a no left turn sign from 7-9 AM and 4-6 PM M-F on Klausmeier and Pinedale.
