Consistent with the County’s Complete Streets policy, this project aims to facilitate safer travel for local commuters, bicyclists and pedestrians in the area of Guilford Park and the new Guilford Park High School. Proposed design improvements along this section of Guilford Road include: 

  1. The installation of a shared use path to enhance pedestrian and bicycle mobility, and
  2. The installation of new street lighting, signage, roadway striping, storm drainage, stormwater management facilities and landscaping along the proposed shared use path.
