Howard County has launched the Route 1 Corridor Master Plan that encompasses transportation, infrastructure, land use and economic development strategies to improve its quality of life. The process will produce development and design scenarios, and identify ways to implement them, based on market realities.

Land use and transportation analysis are at the core of the initiative, along with input gathered through a series of public engagement meetings. The effort will build on previous Route 1 studies, such as the recent U.S. 1 Safety Evaluation, and broader projects such as HoCode Rewrite, the county’s zoning code update.

Public workshops to discuss the plan are scheduled for Nov. 14 and 15. A corridor analysis and conceptual design scenarios (the preliminary results of this research) are anticipated to be presented to the public by the consultant team, RKG Associates, in spring 2019; the initiative is scheduled for completion in fall 2019.
