ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to stabilize a portion of stream near the Centennial Park North Area pedestrian bridge in Ellicott City, is scheduled to begin on or about Monday, September 27th. Approximately 300 linear feet of stream will be corrected and stabilized, and a significant stream bend will be adjusted to create a straight entrance to the existing culvert. The stream will also be modified with stone structures (riffles and step pools) along the channel and banks to increase stability of the stream. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by late December 2021.
The project is not expected to impact the pedestrian trail or vehicular traffic in the project area.
This project is funded through the Howard County’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Fund.
