Mayor Craig A. Moe has announced that the City of Laurel has a
new on-line clearinghouse to inform residents of pedestrian safety
improvements that are pending or have been recently completed. The City
and its Department of Public Works is committed to maintaining and
improving a safe and expansive sidewalk network.  While many
jurisdictions, including the City of Laurel, offer on-line updates for
large projects like road re-surfacing or interchange construction,
“WalkLaurel” offers the opportunity for residents to see the many
small-scale construction projects that the City undertakes which impact
pedestrians and bikers on a more personal level.  In addition,
WalkLaurel allows for residents to provide feedback on proposed
improvements and to comment on areas of the City where pedestrian
facilities may be deficient.  WalkLaurel will be updated and moderated
by the Department of Public Works’ Engineering and Traffic Safety
(EATS) division. “WalkLaurel” can be accessed via the City’s website (; under the Department of Public Works home page.
