Project Name:
US 29, Columbia Pike

Location of Project:
SRI - SOUTH OF SENECA DRIVE TO SOUTH OF MD 175 (PHASE 1B)

Description:
Widen the northbound section of US 29 from Seneca Drive to MD 175 (Phase 1B) from 2 to 3 lanes (2.8 miles).
 
Scope:
This project (Phase 1B) involves widening nearly three miles of northbound US 29 from Seneca Drive to MD 175 from two to three lanes. The project also includes constructing a sound wall along northbound US 29 within the project limits and realigning the ramp from northbound US 29 to eastbound MD 175 to improve safety and sight distance.

The project will reduce congestion and improve safety by widening northbound US 29 to match the southbound section. Currently, southbound US 29 has three lanes, while northbound US 29 only has two lanes. The northbound side experiences severe congestion, particularly during morning and evening rush hours.

Construction began in summer 2014 and will open to traffic summer 2016, weather permitting.

Related Projects:

Phase 1A:
In a separate project underway in conjunction with the widening of northbound US 29, SHA is permanently removing the existing access to Old Columbia Road and Gales Lane from northbound US 29 and constructing an extension of Old Columbia Road to provide alternative access from Twin Knolls Road. SHA will eliminate the crossover between northbound and southbound US 29 at Old Columbia Road, but leave the crossover near Gales Lane open for emergency vehicles only.

Phase 2:
Phase 2 of the US 29 Northbound Widening Project is currently in design and will address the section from Middle Patuxent River to Seneca Drive.
