Road Enhancements

MD Route 32 Improvements

(6/2/22)   90% complete

A recent traffic shift moved travel lanes into the final configuration so crews can work on final paving across the 6.6 mile project. Work continues on the median. 

MDOT SHA expects the two new travel lanes to open in both directions in the next month. 

MD 108 & Centennial Lane

(6/2/2022)   35% complete

Crews are putting down rock in the median of Centennial Lane as they construct a temporary roadway there. Verizon continues to relocate utility lines and poles along MD 108. 

There will be frequent lane closures with a flagging operation on eastbound MD 108 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This project to improve intersection operations is expected to be complete by the end of this year. 

MD Route 99

The Office of Transportation developed a web-based interactive map for the MD 99 Corridor Investigation Report

The State Highway Administration (SHA) recently revised the signal timing on MD 99 at US 29 and Rogers Avenue to address safety concerns involving westbound left-turners and the eastbound traffic. The speed limit on MD 99 was also reduced from 50 mph to 40 mph. SHA also approved exclusive left-turn phasing at MD 99 and Woodstock Road for traffic and safety reasons. MDOT SHA is currently working to fund and schedule the exclusive left-turn phasing project on MD 99 this year.

SHA will be trimming brush and trees and installing additional signage along MD 99 over the summer to mitigate sight distance issues at the existing stop-controlled intersections. 

For additional questions and concerns, please contact David Cookson, Planning Manager. 

MD 94 over I-70 Bridge Project

Replacement of the bridge deck on MD 94 (Woodbine Road) over I-70 in Lisbon, Howard County began last month. The two-lane bridge was originally constructed in 1971. The project will replace the existing roadway surface across the bridge, paint the bridge beams, and repair the concrete supports.  

Before bridge work can begin, crews need to install traffic signals at both ends of the bridge and atop the westbound I-70 exit ramp. Traffic will alternate across the bridge using one lane during construction.  

The project is expected to take one year to complete and is expected to begin in May, 2022.

Westbound I-70

This project will remove the top layer of the roadway, patch failures in the lower layer of the asphalt to ensure roadway stability, and install a new layer of asphalt. Crews are scheduled Sunday night through Friday morning from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. with single lane closures on Westbound I-70 and exit ramp closures during those hours. The project is expected to be complete by July, 2022.  

MD 108 Resurfacing

Road resurfacing on MD 108 (Clarksville Pike) between the Howard/Montgomery County line (past Wainwright Road) and MD 32 (Patuxent Freeway).

This project started last month. The work will remove the top layer of the roadway, patching failures in the lower layer of asphalt to ensure roadway stability, and install a new layer of asphalt. Crews are scheduled overnight from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
