Maryland Route 134 (MD 134) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Maryland. Known as Bellona Avenue, the state highway runs 1.63 miles (2.62 km) from MD 139 in Towson north to Ruxton Road at Ruxton in central Baltimore County. MD 134 was created as a modern road from MD 139 to MD 25 in 1928. The highway was reduced to its present length in 1962.

Route description[edit]

MD 134 begins at MD 139 (Charles Street) in the southwestern part of Towson. Bellona Avenue continues southeast as a county road through Rodgers Forge and then a city street in Baltimore, ultimately ending at MD 45 (York Road). MD 134 heads west as a two-lane road through a forested residential area. The state highway veers north near Lake Roland and begins to closely parallel the Baltimore Light Rail. MD 134 reaches its northern terminus in the village of Ruxton at an intersection with Ruxton Road, which heads west across the tracks toward Pikesville. Bellona Avenue continues north parallel to the light rail tracks as a county highway that intersects Joppa Road in Riderwood before veering east and intersecting MD 139 again just south of Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway). There is also a disjoint segment of Bellona Avenue north of the Beltway in Lutherville.[1][2]

History[edit]

MD 134 originally followed not only its present course along Bellona Avenue, but also Ruxton Road west to MD 25 in the hamlet of Rockland east of Pikesville.[3] The whole original length of the highway was paved in macadam in 1928.[4] The Ruxton Road portion of MD 134 was transferred to Baltimore County in 1962.[5]
