The Howard County Office of Transportation is conducting a Complete Streets corridor study for the segment of Oakland Mills Road from Old Montgomery Road to Snowden River Parkway. Based on initial public input, the Office of Transportation has developed a draft vision statement for Oakland Mills Road:
"Oakland Mills Road shall facilitate access between residential, retail, recreational, and other destinations for users of all transportation modes, while prioritizing safety of people walking and bicycling, transit riders, and turning vehicles over the speed of drivers traveling along Oakland Mills Road."
The Office of Transportation held an open-house style community meeting at Christ Episcopal Church on October 30, 2019 to present concepts developed through the Oakland Mills Road Complete Streets Study.
The following materials were presented at the meeting:
The kickoff meeting, entitled "Envisioning Oakland Mills Road," was held on January 9, 2019 in the Great Hall of Christ Episcopal Church, 6800 Oakland Mills Road (at the intersection with Dobbin Road). At the meeting, County and consultant staff presented preliminary data about Oakland Mills Road traffic and safety, and members of the public marked up a corridor map with comments and concerns.
In addition, a survey and questionnaire about transportation preferences and challenges on Oakland Mills Road garnered over 40 responses, which will guide the development of a vision statement and concept proposals. Click here to view a summary of the input received.
