Road Enhancements

MD Route 32 Improvements

(1/13/21) This project is 54% complete.  

The contractor has completed parapets (side walls) for the new bridge over the Middle Patuxent River and is now placing forms for the closure walls in preparation for a concrete pour. 

In the southern work zone, crews are placing stream diversions for several structures to protect the waterway during work.  

In the central work zone, excavation in front of the Fox Valley neighborhood is finished. Crews are now clearing trees, vegetation, etc. to install erosion and sediment controls from south of the Triadelphia Road bridge to the MDOT SHA Dayton Shop.  

In the northern work zone, rough subgrade has been placed south of MD 144. The Middle Patuxent stream is being relocated to protect the waterway while crews in the area.  

The Triadelphia Road bridge’s structural steel is scheduled to be painted in the spring.

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.
