County:Allegany Project Number:AL445_11
US 0220 MCMULLEN HIGHWAY SRI - MD 53 INTERSECTION/CRESAPTOWN AREA TO VIRGINIA STATE LINE
Project Name:
US 220, McMullen Highway

Location of Project:
SRI - MD 53 INTERSECTION/CRESAPTOWN AREA TO VIRGINIA STATE LINE

Description:
I-68 TO WEST VIRGINIA LINE (TIER 2)
 
Scope:
Project Study Area





The project limits extend along 5.2 miles of US 220 (McMullen Highway) and 3.2 miles of MD 53 (Winchester Road), from I-68 (National Freeway), to the southern limit of Cresaptown. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility in the areas with the greatest needs, while reducing the natural and community impacts associated with the project.

Details on alternatives under study are provided below.

 
What Is Under Study:


In response to concerns voiced by the public regarding property impacts and costs associated with alternatives presented at the US 220 Project Planning Study December 9, 2015 Public Workshop, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) dropped from further consideration all preliminary "build" alternatives presented at the December 2015 Public Workshop. Detailed study of a new proposal – Alternative 2, Modified was initiated following the meeting

Alternatives Retained for Detailed Study (ARDS): Only two alternatives remain under consideration for the project.

    Alternative 1 – No Build: No additional major improvements are proposed, however, routine roadway maintenance would still occur. This alternative does not address the purpose and need for the project, but provides a baseline for comparing build alternatives.

    Alternative 2, Modified:This alternative combines Transportation system Management (TSM) improvements with Cresaptown intersection improvements. Improvements would focus on roadway improvements at local trouble spots. Details of improvements proposed as part of Alternative 2 Modified and their potential environmental impacts may be found in the November 2017 US 220 Project Planning Study Newsletter.
Workshop to Present Results of Detailed Study on Alternative 2 Modified
    Tuesday, December 5, 2017 (Snow Date: Monday, December 11, 2017); 5 PM to 7:30 PM
    Bel Air Elementary School (Cafeteria)
    14401 Barton Blvd SW
    Cumberland, MD 21052
The Alternatives Public Workshop will present information about the project planning process, the preliminary alternatives, and a summary of the study findings to date. Maps and exhibits of the preliminary alternatives, traffic data, and potential impacts will be on display, and team members will be available to answer project-related questions. There will be no formal presentation. You may arrive at any time during meeting hours and walk through at your own pace.

SHA is identifying historic properties in the project area and coordinating with the Maryland Historical Trust and other consulting parties. Consistent with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, SHA requests public comments regarding historic properties.
