US 219, Chestnut Ridge Road
Location of Project:
I-68 TO THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE LINE
Study to reconstruct/relocate US 219 from I-68 to the Pennsylvania State Line (2.5 miles). This represents Maryland's portion of a larger US 219 study, from the Myersdale Bypass in Pennsylvania to I-68 in Maryland.
The US 219 Planning Study is a joint study between the Maryland State Highway Administration and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation . Engineering and environmental studies are being conducted on a section of US 219 from I-68 in Garrett County, Maryland to Meyersdale in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
US 219 is a major north-south route through western Pennsylvania. It links I-68 in Maryland to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-80, providing important access to small cities, towns and rural communities. Recognizing its importance to southwestern Pennsylvania, sections of US 219 have been upgraded to a four-lane, limited access facility. When the section under study is built, the improved corridor will run continuously between I-68 and US 22, providing a much needed transportation improvement for this area.
The project team is developing alternatives to address the transportation issues and economic development along the US 219 corridor. Through engineering and environmental studies and public involvement activities, the team will prepare a transportation improvement project.
What Is Under Study:
In July 2016, the Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration (MDOT/SHA), and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), completed the
US 219 I-68, MD to Myersville PA Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study.
During the study, the project team identified a stand-alone project in Garrett County, Maryland. The project, referred to as the
US 219 Improvement Project: I-68 to Old Salisbury Road,
extends 1.4 miles along US 219. For additional project details visit:
