ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, February 28 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the media center at Hammond High School, 8800 Guilford Road in Columbia, to discuss the planned widening of a portion of Snowden River Parkway. The project will convert Snowden River Parkway from a four-lane roadway to a six-lane urban arterial roadway between Broken Land Parkway and Oakland Mills Road. An eight-foot wide shared-use pathway along both sides of the road is also planned. These improvements will alleviate traffic congestion in the area and provide a safer and more accessible environment for multiple roadway users, including pedestrians and cyclists.  

While there will be no formal presentation, the design plans will be available for public view and staff members will be on hand to explain the proposed work and detour, answer any questions and gather public comments.  

Those unable to attend the meeting who would like to view the proposed plans and/or have questions regarding the project should contact Mr. Thomas Auyeung with DPW’s Transportation and Special Projects Division at 410-313-2014 or email [email protected]. If schools are closed the day of the meeting, the meeting will be rescheduled for Wednesday, March 7 at the same time and location.

An interpreter for people who are deaf or hard of hearing will be available if requested seven working days prior to the meeting. Please call DPW at 410-313-3440 (voice) or use Relay at 7-1-1, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
