The Department of Public Works will begin a project this month to build new paths along Broken Land Parkway that will extend from Lake Elkhorn and the Patuxent Branch Trail.
One path will connect the Lake Elkhorn parking lot on Broken Land with a pedestrian crossing at the Snowden River/ Broken Land intersection. Across the street, another path will take pedestrians from the Patuxent Branch Trail along Broken Land to Snowden River Parkway.
The cost of the construction is $375,000 and was contracted to Highland Turf Inc. of Finksburg, according to Brandon Love, the project's manager for the county.
A new pedestrian signal will be installed on the northbound leg of the Broken Land and Snowden River intersection.
The project is expected to be completed in late September, according to a county release.
Brief lane shifts are expected as part of the construction, according to the county.
