ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to improve a failed storm drain system near 10102 and 10106 Hyla Brook Road in the Village of Wilde Lake in Columbia, is expected to begin on or about Monday, May 16th. The project will include the installation of a larger, reinforced concrete pipe to tie in with an existing inlet. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by early June 2022.
Although the project is not expected to impact the general flow of traffic, lane shifts can be expected as the pipe construction crosses the roadway. The sidewalk within the project zone will be closed to pedestrians for a portion of the project. Signs will be posted in the area to alert motorists and pedestrians of the construction.
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.
