Here's a list of roads that will be closed ahead of the July 4th parade in downtown Catonsville at 3 p.m.
- The parade lines up on Montrose Avenue and enters in the 1600 block of Frederick Road (near ). It proceeds down to the 700 block of Frederick Road and makes a right onto Bloomsbury Avenue. The parade ends at the (old Catonsville Middle School).
- Montrose, Ivanhoe, Idlewylde, Seminole and Ridge avenues will be closed at 1 p.m. There is no parking along these roads after 1 p.m.
- To accommodate the parade, Frederick Road will be closed between Dutton Ave. and Ingleside/ Bloomsbury Avenues beginning at 2 p.m. and all side roads off of Frederick Road will be blocked. Traffic on Frederick Rd. will be detoured off Frederick Road and onto Edmondson Avenue at Delrey Ave. on the east and Rolling Road on the west. Frederick Road will close at 2 p.m. as will access to Bishop’s Lane and St. Timothy’s Lane. Bishop’s Lane will be closed to thru traffic, as there is no outlet at Bloomsbury Ave, at the parade route.
- Rolling Road will be open during the parade, but all traffic will be detoured to side streets and/or turned around and detoured back to Rolling Road, so you can expect major gridlock after 2 p.m. If you are traveling north or south, consider using the Beltway from Wilkens to Edmondson instead of Rolling Road. Follow the detour signs.
