US 0219 IHB - I-68 TO OLD SALISBURY ROAD
Project Name:
US 219, Chestnut Ridge Road

Location of Project:
IHB - I-68 TO OLD SALISBURY ROAD

Description:
Upgrade and relocate US 219, north of I-68/US 40 (1.5 miles). This project is being broken out from a larger study to upgrade and/or relocate US 219 from I-68/US 40 to the Pennsylvania State line.
 
Scope:
Project Study Area

US 219 is a major north-south route through western Pennsylvania that links I-68 in Maryland to I-80 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, providing access to small cities, towns and rural communities. The US 219 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study, initiated in 2015, was completed July 2016. Click to view the PEL Study report.

The Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration (SHA), and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), identified a stand-alone project in Garrett County Maryland during the PEL study process. Project limits extend along US 219 from the I-68 Interchange to Old Salisbury Road, a distance of approximately 1.4 miles. Analysis of alternatives are managed by SHA in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The purpose of the project is to provide transportation improvements that are responsive to planned economic development. The project is needed to support regional and local economic growth; efficient highway operations for development (safety and access management); and a sustainable community.
