US 0015  CATOCTIN MOUNTAIN HIGHWAY SRI - MONOCACY BOULEVARD INTERCHANGE Picture
Project Name:
US 15, Catoctin Mountain Highway

Location of Project:
SRI - MONOCACY BOULEVARD INTERCHANGE

Description:
Construct a grade-separated interchange and park-and-ride lot at Monocacy Boulevard. This project will include appropriate bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
 
Scope:
This project involves constructing a new interchange to replace the existing intersection at US 15 (Catoctin Mountain Highway) and Monocacy Boulevard north of the City of Frederick. New interchange ramps will provide a direct connection those traveling at the US 15 interchange from Christophers Crossing and Monocacy Boulevard will allow drivers to safely merge onto US 15. Additional improvements include a shared-use hiker/biker path along Monocacy Boulevard and Christophers Crossing, ADA-compliant sidewalk and a 400-space ridesharing lot in the northeast quadrant of the interchange; the new lot will provide service to MTA Commuter Bus Line #515.

Other State and county roads and bridges will be improved near the interchange project including:
- Widening and deck replacement the southbound US 15 Bridge over Tuscarora Creek and widening and overlaying the northbound UD 15 Bridge.
- Realigning Thomas Johnson Drive from Byte Drive north to the east to create a T-intersection with Christopher Crossing.
- Creating a cul-de-sac at Hayward Road and close the open median on US 15.
- Reconfiguring the US 15 and Willow Road intersection to allow only right-in/right out to southbound US 15.
- Reconfiguring the median open at US 15 at Biggs Ford Road to accommodate U-turns.
- Resurfacing US 15 from south of Hayward Road to Willow Road.

The widening includes safety enhancements to minimize traffic conflict points by limiting access along the newly widened roadway. The new interchange will also support economic development and enhance safety in a growing area of Frederick County.

Construction began in July 2015 and is scheduled to be complete in early 2018.
