ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to repair and stabilize an undermined stone retaining wall behind 3732 Old Columbia Pike in Ellicott City is expected to begin on or about Monday, January 7. The stone wall foundation was undermined by the May 2018 storm and subsequent events. The wall, located along the south side of the Tiber Hudson Branch, will be repaired and stabilized. Several small and medium sized trees in the affected area will be removed as part of the work and large stones will be placed along the base of the wall for erosion protection. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by early February.
Signs will be posted and flagging operations in place as the southern lane of Hamilton Street will closed in late January/early February for one to two weeks during the installation of large stones. The lane closure will take place during construction hours, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The adjacent sidewalk along Hamilton Street will also be closed during this time frame.
