Carroll County planners and public works staff are considering whether to modify the Monroe Avenue extension project in South Carroll, as Eldersburg residents have voiced mounting complaints on the plans. The $3.5 million project, which will build two missing segments of Monroe Avenue to connect Routes 32 and 26, has been in the works for nearly 30 years. But the project triggered a backlash from residents living along Monroe Avenue, when the county recently designated $340,000 for construction next year.

Carroll County will build two missing segments of Monroe Avenue in Eldersburg, links that will provide traffic with a complete connector road from Route 26 to Route 32 and an alternative to the congested highways. Legislation approved in 2004 allows the county to pay for road construction projects with public funds and then seek reimbursement as properties along the route are developed. This will be the first instance that the commissioners have relied on the new law to build roads. Several subdivisions are planned along Monroe Avenue, and the developer of Oak Creek is building a portion of the road near Bennett Road.
