About the Entry



Baltimore County’s Road Closures application provides the public with critical information on County road closures due to construction accidents, weather and other hazards. The application provides citizens with details about each closed road, including street and community name, affected intersections, closure date and the reason for closure. The closure list is mobile-friendly and can be filtered by street and community name for quickly finding information on the go. The database is updated regularly by Department of Public Works employees and Police through an administrative interface that displays results in real-time. Police can even update directly from their squad cars. GIS integration allows users to view closure overlays on a map. Thirteen distinct icons depict the nature of the road closure at a glance; selecting an individual closure icon brings up full details on the road closure.
