ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) Transportation and Special Projects Division will hold a public meeting on Thursday, February 24th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., in the cafeteria at Thomas Viaduct Middle School at 7000 Banbury Drive in Hanover, to present plans for a road relocation project in Jessup. This project will complete the relocation of Montevideo Road at a site east of 7650 Port Capital Drive to 7286 Montevideo Road to provide safer access along the relocated Montevideo Road corridor.

The proposed work includes construction of a closed section roadway with one lane in each direction, along with a center turn lane, curb and gutter, and sidewalk on both sides of the roadway. The intersection of US 1 at existing Montevideo Road will be converted to a right-in/right-out configuration to and from northbound US 1. The existing traffic signal on US 1 at existing Montevideo Road will also be removed. Future access from southbound US 1 to Montevideo Road will be provided by a left turn at the traffic signal at Port Capital Drive. This project is expected to begin in summer 2022.

This informal meeting will include an overview of the design plans. County staff will be on hand to answer any questions and gather public comments. 

Those unable to participate in this meeting who would like to view the plans and/or have questions, should contact Mr. Abdul Akbari with DPW’s Transportation and Special Projects Division at 410-313-6146 or email [email protected]
