Howard County Extending Safe & Sound Project To North Tunnel

Video Transcript

- Hoping to prevent another nightmare like this in Ellicott City, Howard County is changing the city's Safe and Sound Plan to include the North Tunnel. The extended tunnel is anticipated to reduce water on the street from approximately three and a half feet to less than half a foot. County Executive Calvin Ball says it will also make it so that the county won't have to demolish any buildings. Leaders say the costs should be covered by a federal grant. The county's goal is to begin construction in 2022.
