Road Work Won't Close Main Street

But expect delays as crews work on repairs in Ellicott City's Historic District.

Road work was scheduled to begin Monday night in the Historic District and will continue through Thursday if the weather permits, according to a public works official.

Crews will be working at night in the area, including along Main Street, replacing curbs and gutters, Public Works Director of Special Projects Steve Lafferty wrote in an email to Main Street residents and merchants. 

The work may also require lane closures, detours and traffic flagging along College Avenue near the entrance to St. Paul's Church, wrote Lafferty, who said in the email that he spoke on behalf of County Executive Ken Ulman.

Throughout the week, drivers can also expect parking restrictions on Main Street as crews work, Lafferty said, but Main Street will remain open during the renovations and there will not be any work done on Friday and Saturday.

Earlier in the week, signs leading up to the Historic District on Old Columbia Pike and Frederick Road advised that Main Street would be closed on Wednesday.

"We are committed to doing all we can to minimize any inconvenience," Lafferty wrote.
