A temporary traffic switch on Tuesday may cause some traffic troubles for travelers in Anne Arundel County. 

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration plans on performing the traffic switch onto the newly constructed lane on eastbound MC 175 (Annapolis Road) between Disney Road and Reece Road in Fort Meade. 

This traffic switch is part of the $16.3 million project to widen one-mile of MD 175 to a six-lane divided highway.

Crews will begin the traffic shift at 9 a.m. and it should be complete by 3 p.m.

Motorists traveling on eastbound MD 175 near Meade Middle School will now turn right onto the newly constructed eastbound MD 175 lanes at MacArthur Road. The traffic shift is necessary for crews to continuing work at the eastbound MD 175 and Reece Road intersection.
