HOWARD COUNTY, Md. — The road improvements project for the Guilford Road and Oakland Mills Road intersection will be moving forward.

The improvements will include a new traffic signal, sidewalks and bus pads.

County Executive Calvin Ball hopes with these changes the roads will become safer for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to use. This is a part of Howard County's "Complete Streets Policy" that the county adopted last year.

Members of community say this project is a step in the right direction.

"This is a celebration, a day in which we will never forget, and we look forward to what's to come," said Pastor Jones of First Baptist Church of Guilford.

They estimate that the entire project will be done in a year and hope to start by the beginning of next year.

Next week, they will be hosting two public workshops get people's input on the plan.
