Design Concepts

On November 2, 2016, the Howard County Office of Transportation and the Department of Public Works held a public information session detailing design concepts for improvements to the existing bridge. All concepts being considered include new C O L U M B I A lettering on the bridge face, improved lighting and security, as well as cleaning. Improvements will be made with a $500,000 investment from the Howard Hughes Corporation and funding from the county.
