Triadelphia Turnpike

"ELLICOTT CITY - The Triadelphia road, in the first district of Howard County, was formally transferred [yesterday] by the county commissioners to the Triadelphia Turnpike Company. ... Several miles of the pike have already been finished, a large force of hands are now employed, and work is being rapidly pushed forward.

The new road when completed will prove of great advantage and convenience to a large number of farmers in Howard County, and a considerable portion of Montgomery County, who heretofore have experienced much inconvenience in hauling their produce over soft roads."
