MD Route 99
The Office of Transportation developed a web-based interactive map for the MD 99 Corridor Investigation Report. The Department will be accepting public comment on the recommendations and findings until September 24, 2019. Click here to complete the survey.
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.
SHA will be trimming brush and trees and installing additional signage along MD 99 over the summer to mitigate sight distance isssues at the existing stop-controlled intersections.
