Linking Savage Park to the Laurel MARC Stations



About the Project

Project Goals

The goal of this project is to develop 30% design documents for a series of on/off road facilities to improve connections from the Patuxent Branch Trail trailhead at Savage Park to the North Laurel Community Center continuing to the Laurel Race Track MARC Station and the Laurel MARC Station; potentially including a shared use pathway to improve access and connections across an existing utility right of way.

This project will link with other local and regionally significant area plans that champion bicycle and pedestrian transportation options. They are as follows:

  • BikeHoward (The Howard County Bicycle Master Plan)
  • WalkHoward (The Howard County Pedestrian Master Plan)


The main objective of this project is to identify preferred on/off road improvements to provide needed access to local communities and a multi modal transportation link between North Laurel and Savage Park.  The result of this planning project will guide the connectivity improvements, such as short pathway connections, sharrows, bike lanes and signage to guide cyclists and connect to destinations in the south.
