The state plans to invest nearly $9 million in intersection improvement projects at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Harford County.
The bulk of the money will be used to purchase land needed to upgrade an intersection at Maryland Route 22 and Paradise Round. In addition, the funds will go toward relocating utilities required to eventually improve Route 22 at Old Post Road.
The money for the work comes from the federal government and savings the state has generated from other projects due to a competitive construction market, said Jack Cahalan, a spokesman for the Maryland Department of Transportation . The favorable market, he said, has kept some construction costs lower than projected.
Transportation upgrades have been needed near APG to help accommodate the thousands of military workers and contractors who have relocated to the region as part of the federal Base Realignment and Closure act.
