Howard County Leaders Announce Improvements Are Coming At Guilford, Oakland Mills Roads Intersection
COLUMBIA, Md. (WJZ) — It’s been a year in the making, a movement demanding that Howard County install sidewalks in one neighborhood right outside of Columbia.
County Executive Calvin Ball said improvements are now officially moving forward on the Guilford Road and Oakland Mills Road intersection.
The community of Guilford used to be part of rural Howard County, but recent development has created a lot more traffic.
“This intersection has been the source of community pain for many years, including countless accidents and even a tragic loss of life,” Howard County Councilwoman Christiana Rigby said.
When WJZ first aired this story in November 2019, community leaders expressed concern about the dangers posed by the intersection of Guildford and Oakland Mills roads.
“The problem is not enough pedestrian access in this community,” Rev. Tyrone Jones, of First Baptist Church of Guilford, said.
