County:Harford Project Number:HA348_57
US 0040 SOUTH PHILADELPHIA BOULEVARD
Project Name:
US 40, Pulaski Highway

Location of Project:

Description:
Construct intersection improvements on US 40 at the MD 7/MD 159 (Phase 2) to support the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) initiative.
 
Scope:
In 2017, SHA will begin Phase Two of its project to reconstruct the intersection of US 40 (Pulaski Highway/ Philadelphia Boulevard) with MD 7 (Philadelphia Road) and MD 159 to improve intersection safety and capacity. The intersection improvements will handle increased traffic in Aberdeen generated by the federal BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) program at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

Phase One of this project widened northbound MD 7 at the approach to US 40 to create new turning lanes from MD 7 onto eastbound and westbound US 40. Phase One was completed in February 2015.

Phase Two of the intersection improvements will widen US 40 in the vicinity of the intersection to provide three through lanes on US 40 in both directions through the MD 7/159 intersection.

The new lanes east of MD 7/MD 159 will tie into the new lanes on US 40 provided during the recent project to reconstruct the US 40/MD 715 interchange. Phase Two will also widen MD 159 at the approach to US 40.

Utility relocation work is underway in the vicinity of the intersection. Highway construction work is anticipated to begin early spring 2017.

The highway construction contract was awarded to Allan Myers of MD, Inc. of Fallston.
