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 Triadelphia Road Bridge replacement (Phase II of Route 32 expansion) began in June of 2019. 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 will be in effect through summer 2020.
Beginning January 13, MDOT SHA's contractor will demolish the eastbound span
of the Triadelphia Road bridge over MD 32. The work will take about two weeks to complete.
Crews will work from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. because lane closures and flagging operations on MD 32 are only
permitted at night. Please be advised that the equipment needed for this work may be disruptive at
times. MDOT SHA sent notifications to area residents and businesses prior to the start date.
There will be a flagging operation on MD 32 with an occasional single lane closure during overnight work
hours.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.
