Old Frederick Road at Frederick Road Slope Stabilization

The hillside slope on Old Frederick Road between Frederick Road and Bryans Mill Way experienced erosion due to previous high rainfall events. Multiple options have been evaluated, including closing this section of the road permanently and stabilizing the area of existing road with a green space, keeping the road open and installing a retaining wall or soil nails to hold the slope, or converting the road to one way and stabilizing the remaining slope. These options were presented at a community meeting (PDF) held July 6. The community provided feedback in early September to the Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT), feedback was reviewed by the Department's engineers in October. The feedback was in favor of the road remaining open with a retaining wall. DPWT will request funding for the retaining wall and slope repair in fiscal year 2024 capital budget. The project is dependent on the funding being allocated.
