In 2022, Howard County completed a transformative complete streets transportation project on Oakland Mills Road with a bold conversion to a street that prioritized safety over speed and properly accommodated cyclists and pedestrians. Community outreach was a major aspect of this project from beginning to end, resulting in an outcome that directly reflected the community's needs and a smooth transition to roadway operations on the new layout.
