Trotter Road Slope Stabilization Project Meeting

developmentHoward County is planning to complete the Trotter Road Streambank Stabilization Project (Capital Project D-1163) this summer. The public meeting before the Board of Public Works has been rescheduled and will be held on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 beginning at 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Columbia/Ellicott Conference Room of the George Howard Building (3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City). The Department of Public Works will give a presentation on the history of the project and the proposed construction. The public may also present testimony.
This project is necessary to stabilize and protect approximately 200 linear feet of eroding streambank that threatens the integrity of the road. In the summer of 2012 work was completed in the area where Trotter Road crosses Cricket Creek. This planned portion of the project will be constructed with the same type of material, imbricated rip rap rock.
In order to minimize the time required to construct the project and to ensure the safety of the public and contractor, it will be necessary to close both lanes of Trotter Road and detour traffic. The closure will be located between the Cricket Creek community and the curve that approaches Summer Sunrise Drive. The entrance to the Cricket Creek community will not be closed, however during the construction period (approximately 6 weeks), traffic will be detoured north along Trotter Road to MD 108. Members of the community living off of Trotter Road and north of the creek will need to access the River Hill outdoor pool via Great Star Drive.
Residents having questions about the project prior to the meeting may contact Marshall Davidson, Project Manager, at 410-313-6413 or
