MD Route 32 Improvements (Phase I and II)
The Phase I project (MD 108 to Linden Church Road), as of September 2019 is substantially complete. The contractor is removing approved erosion and sediment controls from the work zone. Crews are also working on punchlist items to close the project which include lighting, CCTV, signs and landscaping.
The scheduled Triadelphia Road Bridge replacement (Phase II of Route 32 expansion) began on Monday, June 24. During the full year of construction, a partial closure of the bridge will occur. Westbound traffic will be maintained, however, eastbound traffic will be detoured using Ten Oaks Road, northbound MD 32, and Rosemary Lane (see above map). This detour and partial closure began on Monday, June 24, 2019 and will be in effect through summer 2020. As of November 2019, the Triadelphia Road bridge replacement work is on schedule. The contractor recently poured the new deck on the wetsbound side. MDOT SHA anticipates switching traffic by the end of December to begin work on the eastbound side. In the southern work zone, crews are installing erosion and sediment controls. Temporary concrete barrier wall has been placed on the southbound shoulder. The project now has a permanent field office location: 3505 Andrea Drive, West Friendship.

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.
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.
