Riedel Road / Johns Hopkins Road Traffic Safety Concerns

The Anne Arundel County Traffic Engineering Division, along with a group of concerned citizens, have been working together to discuss traffic safety concerns for Riedel Road and Johns Hopkins Road.

This website provides the information discussed during these meetings. Please review the following documents. You are also welcome to post your feedback/comments and questions.

The Anne Arundel County Traffic Engineering Division has been working with residents of the Riedel Road and Johns Hopkins Road area to address traffic-related issues.  In our ongoing efforts, we have identified several strategies to enhance the overall traffic operations in the Riedel Road/Johns Hopkins Road corridors. To ensure these strategies align with your needs, we are conducting this survey to inform you and obtain your feedback.  Please review the materials from the May 28th meeting before completing the survey.  

This survey can be completed by more than one person per household (including children).   If you have any questions about the process, please get in touch with Nestor Flores (410-222-7331).  We appreciate your assistance.
