County:Frederick Project Number:FR580_11
IS 0070 BALTIMORE NATIONAL PIKE AT MEADOW ROAD - IJAMSVILLE ROAD INTERCHANGE STUDY
Project Name:
I-70, Baltimore National Pike

Location of Project:
AT MEADOW ROAD - IJAMSVILLE ROAD INTERCHANGE STUDY

Description:
A project to construct I-70/US 40 interchange improvements at Meadow Road, MD 144FA, and Old National Pike.
 
Scope:
Project Area Map



The project is located within Frederick County and extends along Interstate 70 (I-70) from MD 144 (exit 56) to MD 75 (Green Valley Road), (exit 62). The interchange is located approximately 3 miles east of Frederick and 2 miles west of New Market.

The purpose of the I-70 at Meadow Road/MD 144 (Old National Pike) interchange modification project is to provide access to and from the west via I-70 from Meadow Road and Ijamsville Road, while supporting existing and planned development. The existing partial interchange has created circuitous travel patterns for local vehicles heading to and from the west on I-70 from the project area, leading to long queues and delays, congestion, and traffic volumes exceeding capacity.



 
What Is Under Study:
This planning study was initially funded in 2006 by the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) and Frederick County. However, the MDOT SHA planning effort was placed on hold in 2013, prior to completion of the study.

In 2014, Frederick County approved a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district to finance roadway and other infrastructure improvements required to facilitate development planned proximate to the I-70/Meadow Road/Ijamsville Road location. The TIF financing of the roadway improvements enabled the interchange project to proceed without state funding.

Elm Street Development, Inc, the private developer of the 1,560 acre Oakdale Lake Linganore completed roadway design for the interchange and has received a MDOT SHA Access Permit to construct the new westbound I-70 ramp and related improvements. Completion of the interchange improvements is required by Frederick County before the development can move forward. The eastbound ramp improvements will proceed under a separate Access Permit when required by Frederick County for future development approvals.
