ELLICOTT CITY, MD – As part of a Howard County construction project to implement complete street improvements, the sidewalk along the north side of White Acre Road between Stevens Forest Road and Basket Ring Road in Columbia will be closed to pedestrians starting on or about Monday, August 19.

Signs will be in place to direct pedestrians and students, once the school year starts, to use Stevens Forest Road to reach Stevens Forest Elementary School. Crossing guards also will be stationed at the intersections of Stevens Forest Road with White Acre Road and Stevens Forest Road with Kilimanjaro Road.

The complete street project will improve mobility, access and safety for vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic, and is expected to be completed in late fall, weather permitting.
