ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to investigate below ground conditions along Church Road and Emory Street in Historic Ellicott City, is expected to begin on or about Monday, October 3rd. The project will include drilling geotechnical borings and test holes, which will be backfilled once the work is finished. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by early October 2022.
Signs will be posted to alert motorists and pedestrians of the project as Emory Street from Church Road north to Court Avenue will be closed to all vehicular and foot traffic during construction hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Additionally, no parking signs will be posted on Emory Street and will remain in effect until the work has been completed. Motorists will follow a clearly marked detour using Main Street and Court Avenue to get around the work zone. A recorded message at 410-313-3639 will carry project updates.
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.
