Maryland Studying Route 5 Improvements

Southern Maryland commuters take note: The State Highway Administration plans to hold a meeting Tuesday evening, Feb. 24, to discuss its proposals for easing congestion and improving safety along heavily traveled Route 5, between Route 301 and the Capital Beltway.

Of particular concern is rush hour congestion at the signalized intersections toward the south side of the corridor. See details here about some of the options under consideration in the study. The alternatives include some spot improvements to better manage traffic flow on the existing roadways, upgrading Route 5 to expressway standards, or creating express toll lanes or High Occupancy Vehicle lanes.

The Tuesday meeting is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. at Surrattsville High School's cafeteria, 6101 Garden Drive, Clinton.

Dr. Gridlock, can you please include an actual date in your articles instead of saying "next Tuesday." This would make some things much more clear. Thanks.
