We Want the Bikeway

We want Howard County to be a place where everyone can easily and safely walk or bike where they need to go.

We need a new, higher level of investment in biking to make this vision a reality.

This is why we support funding and building the Bikeway, a network of routes from the Bicycle Master Plan that would connect more than half of county residences, schools and parks — extending from Clarksville to Elkridge, and Laurel to Ellicott City.

The Bikeway aligns with Howard County’s vision for the development of Downtown Columbia as a thriving urban district.

Building The Bikeway will present the public with visible, connected routes, and help Howard County reinforce its reputation as a county with many healthy amenities.
