IMPORTANT: LITTLE PATUXENT PKWY ROAD CLOSURE SCHEDULED TO BEGIN MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 2017.

Water transmission main project now underway along Little Patuxent Parkway in Columbia

ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to install a water transmission main along Little Patuxent Parkway in Columbia is underway. The project will include the installation of approximately 9,000 linear feet of 36-inch water pipe to provide redundancy to the Howard County water distribution system.
The majority of the work will take place along the southbound shoulder of Little Patuxent Parkway between South Entrance Road and Columbia Road. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by late April 2017.

A portion of southbound Little Patuxent Parkway in the vicinity of the project will be closed from mid-January 2017 to mid-March 2017. During the closure, traffic will follow a marked detour using Governor Warfield Parkway. Flagging operations will be in place to direct traffic as needed, and signs will be posted to alert motorists of the construction.
