Located in the heart of Annapolis’ historic district, the Annapolis City Dock Bulkhead Design and Replacement project was a high-profile endeavor requiring careful and extensive coordination between the City of Annapolis, key organizations, businesses, and government agencies.  Phase 1, completed in 2008, involved replacing 1,100 linear feet of steel sheet pile bulkhead along the south section of City Dock, 850 linear feet of boardwalk, multiple piers, and associated utilities, as well as reconstruction of Susan Campbell Park. Phase 2 concluded the City Dock Bulkhead Replacement and was completed in Spring 2016. This phase focused on protecting the inner City Dock (north section) near Market Space and Compromise Street. In all, Phase 2 involved constructing a 700-linear-foot cantilevered steel sheet pile bulkhead with concrete cap, replacing and widening the boardwalk, and installing new boat slips and timber mooring piles. Click for More...

Baltimore County Department of Public Works | Owner
Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson | Consultant
Kibler Construction Company| Contractor

Owings Mills Boulevard in Baltimore County, is a north-south arterial road, supporting traffic between established commercial developments, large retail presences, and a commuter rail station. The community is a designated growth area for Baltimore County, and for more than 20 years the County has established planning/zoning strategies and policies to foster area development. 
Drivers previously relied on indirect routes, navigating through residential areas to travel between the nearby communities. The County sought to provide a roadway extension to connect these districts directly with Reisterstown Road and Liberty Road – key local west-east arterials – and create a safer, quicker way to travel. Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson (JMT) designed both phases of the Owings Mills Boulevard south extension project.
