Ongoing Projects

The Town of Sykesville is working on projects!  Check out the current projects below.   This page will be updated when there is new information for any project. 

Millard Cooper Park

  • Zip Line
    The zipline feature was installed in 2020 as part of the new playground construction.  During its brief use, the cable has failed or nearly failed several times and is currently down until the cause is determined.  We are working with the manufacturer of this equipment to have them complete additional testing and make the necessary improvements to prevent this cable failure from happening in the future.  The time line to complete these tests given by the manufacturer is estimated to be several more weeks.  We appreciate the positive feedback the community has given on the zipline and the patience being shown as we work to ensure the equipment properly repaired.  Once we have a date for reinstallation, we will post it here.  
  • Splash Pad
    We are very excited for the splash pad, and we know you are too!  BGE has completed their electrical work.  We are currently testing the splash pad, so you may see it running at times.  After we complete testing, we will begin working through the county and state inspection process.  An official grand opening will be scheduled for spring of 2022.

Linear Trail

  • Work on this project will begin on Monday, October 25.  While work is ongoing, the entrance to the Linear Trail off of Brandenburg Circle will be closed.  The trail will still be open, and you can use the entrance on Kalorama Road.   Approximately 600 linear feet of asphalt trail adjacent to the Brandenburg Circle entrance to the Trail will be repaired or replaced.  A contract was awarded to White Pine Paving.  Rehabilitation or replacement of the six exercise stations along this section of trail is also being planned.  Replacement will be dependent on funding.
