ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to repair an eroded stream bank and improve water quality in the vicinity of 9513 Longview Drive in Ellicott City is scheduled to begin on or about Monday, January 22. The project will include the stabilization of approximately 425 linear feet of stream bank along Plumtree Branch between Longview Drive and US 40 that were damaged as a result of the July 30, 2016 storm event. In addition, improvements to the stream bank will be made using rock structures. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by late May.
The project is not expected to impact the flow of traffic in the area.
The project is funded through the County’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Fund.
