Bridge and Pathway Removal – Faulkner Ridge Circle and Green Mountain Circle

Howard County Department of Public Works is planning a water main construction project in the area of Faulkner Ridge Circle and Green Mountain Circle.  Columbia Association has recently been notified that the bridge and pathway located between Faulkner Ridge Circle and Green Mountain Circle was built within a county easement.  See map below for the location.

As a result, DPW has informed CA that it must remove the bridge and pathway out of the easement because it is blocking access to the water main.

According to CA, the work for this project will likely begin this Fall. Due to the restrictions of the easement terms, the bridge and pathway cannot be returned to their current locations. CA Open Space staff is currently considering options that may be available after the water main construction is completed.

Please contact Albert Edwards, CA Assistant Director, Open Space and Facilities Services, at with questions or concerns about the project.
