May 11, 2012

Here is the Morning Mojo Report for Friday, May 11:

* As of 7 a.m., traffic was sluggish on I-270 southbound and I-495 westbound, but was running fine on all the other interstates throughout the area.

* Light Rail train service is suspended between Timonium and Hunt Valley Stations and is scheduled to remain so until July so four existing deteriorated grade crossings in the Hunt Valley area can be replaced, according to the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) website, mta.maryland.gov. During this time a shuttle bus will be available to take people from the affected stations, which are Hunt Valley, Pepper Road, McCormick, Gilroy and Warren Road.

* There is also a major service delay on the Light Rail from North Avenue to Cromwell, BWI and Timonium, according to the MTA website.

* Despite the Light Rail delays, the MARC Train, the Commuter Buses, local bus services, the Metro Subway system, and the Mobility service, are all running on time and operating on their regular schedules, according to the MTA website.

* The weather today is expected to be sunny with a high near 71 degrees and winds between 12 and 15 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service. Tonight, it's expected to be clear with a low around 43 degrees and winds between 4 and 7 mph.

* The Longmeadow Road-Marsh Pike intersection is still undergoing an improvement project. Workers are assisting traffic when needed at the intersection.

* Only one lane of Md. 550 in Thurmont, Md., is open between Eylers Valley Flint Road and Kelbaugh Road due to a mudslide that occurred last April. However, it could reopen by early July.
