Oakland Mills Road Complete Streets Study


The Howard County Office of Transportation is conducting a Complete Streets corridor study for the segment of Oakland Mills Road from Old Montgomery Road to Snowden River Parkway. Based on initial public input, the Office of Transportation has developed a draft vision statement for Oakland Mills Road:

"Oakland Mills Road shall facilitate access between residential, retail, recreational, and other destinations for users of all transportation modes, while prioritizing safety of people walking and bicycling, transit riders, and turning vehicles over the speed of drivers traveling along Oakland Mills Road."
