The Office of Transportation has begun work on a study to develop and evaluate the feasibility of providing pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the North Laurel Area of the County. Specifically, the study's extent will include the stretch of Old Scaggsville Road from Superior Ave to High Ridge Park. The study will seek to implement the County’s Complete Streets Design Manual in this area, and will include concept layouts of potential improvements.

Project Details

The feasibility study will include the following measures:

  • Gather and evaluate available existing information and data within the project limits. This will include GIS information, identification of major pedestrian/bike
    generators, field observations, roadway posted speed limits, roadway characteristics within the corridor, and any available crash data.
  • Identify constraints and evaluate impacts of proposed concepts including drainage and SWM concerns, as well as potential environmental,
    grading, right-of-way, and utility impacts.
  • Develop concept layouts for proposed pedestrian and bicycle facilities within the project limits.
  • Host a public meeting to discuss the study and facilitate feedback from residents.
  • Create a final report of the study, which will include a description of the existing corridor, critical elements/constraints within the
    corridor, and the proposed concepts. 

Public Meeting and Input

A public meeting will be held to discuss the concepts created for feasibility study. The meeting will be scheduled for summer 2024. Please subcribe to receive updates from the Office of Transportation on this project's public meeting and other news.
