Howard Community College Connector

About the Project

This project will create a north-south connection, via a combination of a IMG_20190531_1319006new shared-use path, paving, and sharrows, between Hickory Ridge Road and Little Patuxent Parkway via Howard Community College. It will also include a new pedestrian crossing of Hickory Ridge Road with rapid flashing beacons and a refuge island. This connection is identified by both BikeHoward and Howard Community College’s Facilities Master Plan, and will not only improve bicycle and pedestrian access to the College but also link with existing pathways to create a new bicycle and pedestrian route between Hickory Ridge and the new Downtown Columbia Trail.


Construction is underway as of May 2019, and is expected to be complete during the summer of 2019.
