Link to Parole funded Rt. 50 span work also moved up rf __ By EFFIE COTTMAN Staff Writer The State Highway Administration has ap- proved funds for the final leg of Patuxent keeping its promise to relieve traffic congestion in the Parole area. The 1.8-mile link was among several pre- viously unfunded road projects benefiting from an extra million in transportation funds expected over the next six years. Other area projects moved up because of additional funding include widening and replac- ing the deck on the Route 50 bridge over the Severn and improvements to Route 32 in the Millersville area and Route 100 in north county. Extra money is anticipated because of high- er than expected gasoline taxes and vehicle titling and lower than expected costs for several bridge and road said John transportation spokesman. SHA Administrator Hal Kassoff said con- struction of the final link of Patuxent Boulevard will cost about million. Groundbreaking is scheduled for fiscal year he said. The entire also known as Route should be completed by fiscal Kassoff said. Just fantastic said County Councilwoman Maureen T. D-Annapolis. think most of the people who live down here on the Peninsula will be tickled to death because traffic problems along Forest Dim have just gotten said D-Aaatpdtii. Mrs. Lamb and other city and state politicians lobbied for months for funds to complete the calling it the most important road project in the Annapolis area. The four-lane thoroughfare between Route 50 and Spa Road has been touted as a cure for traffic congestion in Parole. It win replace Forest Drive as the major link between Parole and the Annapolis Neck and enable motorists to reach Route 50 without using West Street or Route 2. The first two segments of the from Route 50 to Church already had been funded for construction in the six-year highway planning guide. It is being built in so the road initially will not include an elaborate inter- change at Route Kassoff said. on Page CoL Official balks at giving city new pool By CHRISTINE NEUBERGER Staff Writer Swimming pools are for cooling but a plan to build the county's first pool near Annapolis has boiled over into a feud bitterly dividing the County Council. County Councilman Theordore J. Sopbodeus argues that denser popu- lated north not deserves the county's first swim- ming facility. D-Lintbi- said he's not convinced that the county should build swimming pools when funds are sorely needed for school construction and renovation. The controversy may dominate a hearing next Wednesday night when citizens are invited to testify on the resolution giving the council's bless- ing to construction of the first pool. The recommended site is next to Annapolis Senior High School on Riva Road. County Executive 0. James Lighthiser had long expected to build tbe first swimming facility in north county. But he recently threw his support behind the Annapolis site to break a deadlock stalling the pro- gram. Last Sophocleus and the other six council members signed a letter indicating they don't object to proceeding on construction of a pool near Annapolis while the location and type of north county facility remains under discussion. The dispute that has since mater- ialized prompted Councilwoman Maureen T. to introduce the resolution make it very clear where tbe pool will be and get rid of all this The measure would reverse the priorities of tbe pool plan approved last year that placed a north county pool at the bead of the list. Although Ms. Lamb feels aged by the response I've gotten from most of the she said tbe disagreement truly pulling the council apart. It should not be a north-south Sophocleus said this week he doesn't want the location of the county's first pool to split the county or its council. But be complained that he's not satisfied that county administrators exhausted efforts to find a site for a pool in north county. He also said be is not certain whether he'll ultimately support pool although he approved the project in the fiscal 1986 The Capital budget. Mrs. Lamb wants to know what my problem it's that I'm just not sure we should be investing mil- lion for a he said. Sopbocleus has requested that the council schedule a second hearing in north county Jan. 29 at the county Pascal Senior Center in Glen Burnie. It that he may have trouble getting the necessary votes. oa Page CoL Legislators may hold 'bullies' at bay STATE HOUSE RALLIES MOVE By JUBI PB1LMAN Staff Writer Organisen of today's savings and loan raDy in Annapolis were surprised to learn the state will impose new restrictions on demonstrations st the State House this year.
