MD Route 32 Improvements
While phase II of the project, the Triadelphia Road bridge replacement, was completed in early September, 2020, improvements continue to be made to MD 32.
A traffic shift was performed in June on northbound MD 32 for the new bridge over the Middle Patuxent River. The contractor is now drilling caissons for the new bridge. On the bridge over Terrapin Branch, crews are preparing to install a temporary retaining wall. Concrete beams for the deck will be placed during overnight work on July 29 and 30.
At access road #4, crews are placing GAB (graded aggregate base) stone and underdrain. In the Southern Work Zone, an embankment was cut to provide fill for the future southbound MD 32 roadway. Crews in the Northern Work Zone are now placing earth as fill for the new southbound MD 32 lanes as well as relocating the Terrapin Branch stream.

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 isssues at the existing stop-controlled intersections.
For additional questions and concerns, please contact David Cookson, Planning Manager.
