It's The Little Things That Count

This is just a little road project but it is one that should help improve the mess that is the entrance to the Wal-Mart et al. We just wonder who thought this was a good idea to start now, at the height of the holiday shopping season.

A Howard County construction project is currently under way at the intersection of Dobbin Road and Dobbin Center Way, south of Route 175, in Columbia.  The project will include construction of a right turn lane from southbound Dobbin Road onto westbound Dobbin Center Way.  Weather permitting, the project should be completed in May 2010.

During work hours, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the existing right lane on southbound Dobbin Road may be closed.  Flagging operations will be in place to direct traffic as needed and signs will be posted to advise motorists of the construction.
