ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to patch and repair the Columbia Gateway Drive on-ramp from Snowden River Parkway in Columbia, is expected to begin on or about Wednesday, April 28th. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed within one day.
During the project, the Columbia Gateway Drive on-ramp from Snowden River Parkway will be closed. Traffic will follow a clearly marked detour using eastbound MD 175, MD 108 (Waterloo Road) and westbound MD 175. Flagging operations will be in place to assist motorists. Additionally, a recorded message at 410-313-3637 will carry detour information and project updates.

While the County and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, drivers are reminded to stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Please slow down and don’t follow too closely when traveling through a work zone. Remember, work zone safety is in your hands.
For questions or concerns about this project, contact Lisa Brightwell, Public Works Customer Service, at 410-313-3440 or email
