Mayo Peninsula Traffic

 

Anne Arundel County has more shoreline than any jurisdiction in the state, so we benefit from life on the water. We also have several peninsulas, including Broadneck, Pasadena, Annapolis, Mayo, Shady Side and Deale. These peninsulas offer unique traffic problems because they have only one way in and one way out. 

The County is committed to improving traffic congestion on peninsulas through several initiatives: 

  • Advocating for road construction funding from the state to improve conditions on peninsula roads
  • Forward funding construction projects on State roads, such as intersection improvements to MD 214 and MD 468
  • Adhering to guidelines established in Small Area Plans
  • Expanding sidewalks and shoulders where possible
  • Revising the General Development Plan to plan growth responsibly
 
 
Two of the most important roads servicing the Mayo Peninsula are State roads, MD 214 Central Avenue and MD 468 Muddy Creek Road. These roads are maintained by the Maryland State Highway Administration. The County has forward funded a $6.8 million project to expand turn lanes and improve intersections on these roads despite the State's responsibility to maintain them. While it will not solve traffic issues, the project will provide some relief. It is scheduled to be completed soon.
 
In response to citizen concerns about traffic, the County is currently revising its road improvement priority letter to the State of Maryland with future improvements entry points in the Edgewater area.
