ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County project to construct Ridgelys Run Road at 8490 Washington Boulevard (US 1) in Jessup is scheduled to begin on or about Monday, June 28th. An existing dead-end road, the roadway will be extended and expanded to become Ridgelys Run Road. A 2,000-linear-foot access roadway, the new road will lead to a future 2.5-million-gallon elevated water storage tank and the future High School 13. The project will also include a 10-foot shared-use path, stormwater management system, associated utilities and intersection improvements at US 1 and Ridgelys Run Road. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by late May 2022.

School construction has been a priority of my administration since day one, with County investment increasing by 25 percent to advance critical projects like High School #13 to provide additional capacity for our student population. The construction of Ridgelys Run Road will provide safe access to High School #13 and is a critical part of the infrastructure needed to accommodate our students.
