ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to repair and improve a stormwater management pond located adjacent to 6501 Huntshire Drive in Elkridge, is expected to begin on or about Monday, May 23rd. This project will be completed in two consecutive phases and will overall include the installation of a new concrete riser and three 48-inch reinforced concrete principal spillway pipes, two forebays, a pilot channel, relocation of sections of a sanitary sewer line and a water line, and the placement of stone at the outfall to reduce erosive velocities.  

While Phase One will not require a road closure or detour, the sidewalk adjacent to the pond will be closed to pedestrians during this phase of the project. Signs will be posted near the project site to alert motorists and pedestrians of the work and closure. Weather permitting, Phase One is expected to be completed in early August 2022.

Immediately following the completion of Phase One, the County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will begin Phase Two. During this phase of the project, a portion of Huntshire Drive from 6501 to 6515 will be closed to through traffic in both directions; the entrance to the Meadowridge Landing Shopping Center will however remain open. Thru-traffic will follow a clearly marked detour using Old Highgate Drive, Old Rockbridge Drive and Meadowridge Road. Weather permitting, Phase Two is expected to be completed by early December 2022.

This project supports the County’s water quality improvement and restoration efforts under its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit. Additionally, a portion of this project is funded through the County’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Fund.
