ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to improve eroding stream banks along the Sucker Branch near 3505 Sylvan Lane in Ellicott City, is expected to begin on or about Monday, February 6th. 

The project will include the installation of a 250 linear foot retaining wall to stabilize the steep slopes along Sylvan Lane. Stabilization of the slope will improve the stream channel and water quality of the stream and the Patapsco River. Also, 270 linear feet of roadway along Sylvan Lane in the project area will be reconstructed to improve the stability of the roadway. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by late July 2023.

During constructions hours, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the end of Sylvan Lane, starting at 3511 Sylvan Lane, will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Signs will be posted near the area to advise motorists and pedestrians of the work.
