County:Anne Arundel Project Number:AT198_11
MD 0003 ROBERT CRAIN HIGHWAY MD 32 TO US 50
Project Name:
MD 3, Robert Crain Highway

Location of Project:
MD 32 TO US 50

Description:
Study to upgrade MD 3 from US 50 to MD 32 to address safety and capacity concerns (8.9 miles). Bicycle and pedestrian access will be provided where appropriate.
 
Scope:
Project Study Area

The project involves a study of transportation and mobility improvements to MD 3 from north of US 50 to south of MD 32, in southwestern Anne Arundel County and northeastern Prince George’s County. The purpose of this study is to address existing and projected operational and safety issues for local traffic (vehicles and pedestrians) within the project limits by analyzing all reasonable alternates, including the No-Build Alternate, to achieve project goals while minimizing impacts to local residents, businesses, and the environment. The study would also address forecasted operational and safety issues within the MD 3 corridor.

The existing roadway is inadequate to handle future traffic volumes resulting from the existing and planned growth and development in the study area. The study area of MD 3 has safety issues related to rear-end, sideswipe, and opposite direction collisions. The significantly higher forecasted traffic volumes on this roadway are likely to increase the occurrence of crashes within the study area.
 
What Is Under Study:
This project is on hold.

In 2011, the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approved the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration's (MDOT SHA) "Preferred Alternate" as described in the Executive Summary of the March 2011 Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the MD 3 Project Planning Study, prepared by FHWA and MDOT SHA, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

However, the project was placed on hold prior to receipt of final project approval from FHWA.
