STATE HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION SR 22 UPDATE

The Maryland State Highway Administration provided a status report of ongoing construction efforts along State Rt. 22 in Aberdeen during the Nov. 27 City Council meeting. Reports include that new curb and gutter will be the focal point of work over the new few months. The final top coat of asphalt is expected to be poured next spring. SHA will also be replacing old security fencing that parallels SR 22 that has been destroyed or torn down for many years.

WASTE, RECYCLING COLLECTION CHANGES IN ABERDEEN

The City of Aberdeen is changing its waste and recycling collection program. The first change starts with new 64-gallon, two-wheeled containers for every residence, purchased by the city. The mechanical lift on the city’s trash and recycling trucks will raise and empty the container, keeping personnel out of contact with the heavy, sometimes dangerous, contents. Delivery to residents is estimated to begin in February or March, weather dependent. For more information, visit https://www.aberdeenmd.gov/home/news/new-toter-program.
