Flagmen will slow traffic during routine pre-winter patch work.
State Highway Administration officials announced new road projects that will slow traffic on Wilkens Avenue and South Rolling Road for the next two months. Last week, crews began routine patching work on Wilkens Avenue from the I-695 beltway to South Rolling Road (MD 166).

Someone spray-painted the exterior of the camera overnight on Saturday.
The box that holds the speed camera at South Rolling Road and Brook Road was vandalized early Sunday morning, after someone spray-painted the box. As of Monday morning, the camera was operational and the spray paint had been removed. The camera was installed in April as a third location along South Rolling Road to catch speeders. The other two boxes are by Catonsville High School. The box is the same box that was set on fire, roughly two weeks after it was installed. On Sunday night, the box was still covered with black spray paint. The camera itself is removed at the end of every day and put back the next morning.

With a third location for a Baltimore County speed camera, Patch wants to know where the worst speeding is.
Last week, Baltimore County installed a third location for a speed camera. The location is also on South Rolling Road but it is roughly a mile north of the two locations by Catonsville High School. A cement pad designed to hold a speed camera now sits just south of the intersection of Brook Road and Gary Drive. The camera faces south and can only catch speeders heading south on South Rolling Road. Residents who live near the second location and Councilman Tom Quirk said that stretch of road is by far the worst for speeding. Patch wants to know, where do you think the worst speeding in Catonsville is? Is it along Rolling Road or somewhere else?
