Construction activities related to the stream restoration and UMBC Stadium Complex will begin the week of September 13. The project consists of improvements to portions of a tributary of the West Branch of Herbert Run, general landscape improvements and new accessible walkway and pedestrian bridge between Hilltop Circle and the UMBC Stadium Complex. The project completion is expected summer 2022.
Construction fencing will be installed around the construction area for the duration of the project. The fencing will impact access to the stadium through existing pedestrian walkways and tunnel at Hilltop Circle. Access to the stadium from Hilltop Circle will be maintained via the walkway adjacent to the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena for the duration of the project. Pedestrian access to the bwtech Research Park will be maintained via the existing pedestrian bridge near CERA pond.
Construction vehicle entrances from Hilltop Circle will require closure of up to eight parking spaces along the outer loop of Hilltop Circle. Portions of sidewalk at the construction vehicle entrances will also need to be closed for the duration of construction. Signage will direct pedestrians around these closures, via accessible routes.
