ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Department of Public Works’ (DPW) Transportation and Special Projects Division will hold an open house event on Thursday, November 2nd from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Media Room at River Hill High School in Clarksville, to present plans for a multi-modal travel improvement project along Ten Oaks Road from Brighton Dam Road to MD 108.
The informational open house event will offer attendees the opportunity to view two design ideas to separate bicycle traffic and vehicular traffic along Ten Oaks Road from Brighton Dam Road to MD 108. While there will not be a formal presentation, DPW staff and representatives from the design team will be on hand to answer any questions and gather public comment. Following the open house event, one preferred design idea will be selected to move on to final design, which is expected to be completed by fall 2024. Construction of the project is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2025.
Ten Oaks Road from Brighton Dam Road to MD 108 was identified in the MD 32 Alternate Bike Route Study as a “pinch point” segment that presents challenges to cyclists sharing the roadway with vehicles. The Maryland State Highway Administration completed the study in 2019 to identify a viable and safe alternate bicycle route to MD 32, which permanently removed bicycle access from MD 108 to I-70.
Those unable to attend the open house who would like to view the exhibits and/or have questions, should contact Caitlin Kovel, PE of the Transportation & Special Projects Division at 410-313-6142 or email [email protected].
