ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration announced major road projects along MD 170, MD 214, and MD 174 in Anne Arundel County.

MD 174 / Severn Road Intersection Improvements in Severn

MDOT SHA is planning to construct a left-turn only lane for cars turning left on eastbound MD 174 to northbound Severn Road. Road work will also be extended to lengthening existing right-turn lane from westbound MD 174 to northbound Severn Road. They say the project will be completed by the summer of 2020.

Crews will improve roadway drainage; replace concrete curb and gutter; and mill, pave and restripe the pavement. The existing traffic signal will be upgraded to include the new turn lane.

There will be single lane closures Mondays through Fridays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and Sundays through Thursdays between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. the following morning.

MD 170 Speed Limit Reduction near Betson Avenue in Odenton

MDOT SHA is reducing the speed limit from 50 mph to 45 mph on a nearly three-mile section of MD 170 between Betson Avenue and MD 174.

The updated speed limit signs identifying the new speed limit will be installed by the end of August.

MD 214 / MD 468 (Muddy Creek Road) Intersection Improvements in Mayo

Construction crews are starting a project to help safety and improve efficiency at the MD 214 (Central Avenue) / MD 468 (Muddy Creek Road) intersection in Mayo.

MDOT SHA will resurface and restripe the existing intersection to create a dedicated turn lane in each direction. Once complete, eastbound MD 214 will have one through lane and a dedicated right-turn-only lane, and westbound MD 214 will have two through lanes and a dedicated left-turn-only lane. Lane configurations on MD 468 will remain in place.
