Pathway Renovation (Old Dragon Path and Columbia Road)

The week of October 3 has been confirmed as the start time.  The Columbia Association and Howard County Parks and Rec will be renovating pathways in the area of Old Dragon Path and Columbia Road. The work will be performed by the same contractors to minimize the impact to the residents. The project is scheduled to start in October. Once the project begins, the anticipated duration is thirty days, weather permitting. After the paving is complete, a landscape contractor will backfill and stabilize the area. There will be limited access to the pathway during working hours, 7:00 am until Dusk Monday through Friday. The sidewalks along Columbia Road will remain open and are recommended for use during this project. Signage will be posted on-site to notify the public of this project once the contractor confirms the start date. Please see the attached map showing the path that will be renovated, Columbia Associations marked in red and Howard County Parks and Rec marked in blue. The sidewalks that are recommended for use are marked in magenta. For questions or concerns, please email Jason Heath at or Jeff Hull at
