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 4,470 feet of the Hollywood Branch, from Midland Rd. down to Cannon Rd. Construction on the upper Hollywood Branch stream restoration project was completed during the Spring/Summer of 2014. The second half of the project will be completed during the Spring/Summer of 2015.

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 restoring 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). 

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.
