Route 1 Master Plan public comment

       Anyone who has traveled along Route 1 from North Laurel to Elkridge knows how much the area has changed from when it was a 2 lane road with Mom and Pop stores and trailer parks.  Now, much of the residential development in Howard County is occurring along the roadway.  A Master Plan is being developed by the County and they are inviting the public to comment on the plan.

Activating transportation, infrastructure, land use and economic development implementation strategies to improve vibrancy and quality of life throughout the Route 1 corridor
