Historic Ellicott City To Reopen

Historic Ellicott City will reopen to pedestrians and traffic tomorrow. 

Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman made the announcement saying,

"Two-way vehicular traffic will resume on Main Street starting Thursday and pedestrians will be allowed to walk throughout the area. Tiber Alley will remain closed until Friday, Oct. 7 at 5:00 p.m. so that crews may complete additional necessary repairs. Motorists are reminded that the speed limit is 25 mph and caution is urged."

Kittleman adds,

"Some access to sidewalks, particularly on Main Street between Old Columbia Pike and Maryland Avenue, may be restricted from time to time as business owners continue work on their properties. It could be necessary to impose temporary traffic restrictions and flagging operations at times, particularly near Maryland Avenue where county public works crews are rebuilding a retaining wall near the B&O railroad bridge. No parking and parking restriction signs will be posted throughout the area. Parking will not be permitted on Main Street, though vehicles involved in repair work will be allowed to load and unload materials in certain, marked locations."
