Hollywood Branch Stream Restoration
As a part of the County's effort to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams and enhance aquatic habitat, the County is collaborating with the Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), to restore approximately 4,800 feet of the Hollywood Branch, from Midland Rd. down to Cannon Rd. Construction on the upper Hollywood Branch stream restoration project will begin approximately Spring/Summer 2014 due to the permitting process.
This project is also adjacent to the Cannon Road Green Streets project which includes the Carole Acres, Buckly Downs, and Woodlawn Terrace area. Green Street projects generally involve installing small-scale stormwater practices within the County's right-of-way to capture water from roadways and sidewalks during storms.
The State Highway Administration (SHA) is planning to restore the lower section of Hollywood Branch below Cannon Rd. to the confluence with the Paint Branch as part of their environmental stewardship and mitigation for the Inter County Connector (ICC). This SHA project summary provides more information about this project to restore the lower half of Hollywood Branch.
Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project. Go to the "Project Schedule and Documents" tab for more information.
