H539621 Jumpers Hole Road, MD 2 to MD 177

Project Background:

The scope of this project is for a planning-level study only with concept-level plans. However, a capital project may be initiated in the future to implement the recommendations of the study if deemed justified by the County.

Anne Arundel County is proposing to upgrade conditions along Jumpers Hole Road from MD Route 2 to MD Route 177 to improve travel conditions for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Modifications are being considered along the corridor and at several intersections to improve traffic operations, safety, mobility, and accessibility for all modes of travel. Changes to design at key intersections may be considered, but no additional through lanes along Jumpers Hole Road will be recommended. With anticipated growth in traffic in the area, the County aims to provide transportation facilities that better align with existing and future local needs.
 
This effort serves as a follow-up evaluation from the original study completed in 2018.
 
Road
  
Upgraded accessibility, mobility, and safety for non-motorized roadway users is being considered in the form of facilities that would separate pedestrians and bicyclists from motorist traffic, including on-road bicycle lanes, sidewalks, or shared-use paths, combined with opportunities to encourage lower vehicular traffic speeds. Due to the proximity of this corridor to the B&A Trail and several nearby businesses, improved conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists are of heightened importance.
 
Several developments along and adjacent to Jumpers Hole Road do not have alternate motorist accesses to the regional road network, and residents have noted to the County their difficulties in turning onto Jumpers Hole Road. This study will include an assessment of several possible options to improve ease of access onto Jumpers Hole Road from these communities. Opportunities may include:

  • Future roadway connections from these neighborhoods to adjacent roads that connect to Jumpers Hole Road and other roads in the area
  • Roundabouts at key intersections that would allow for indirect left turns (via right turns onto Jumpers Hole Road and U-turns at the roundabout)

 
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Update, August 2022: The final technical report and appendices have been completed and can be viewed using the links below for informational purposes.  The report includes a screening of potential improvements, analysis of selected options, and development of preferred recommendations at the intersection and corridor levels.  This incorporates input from the spring 2022 public outreach period and additional coordination with community leaders.  The County aims to develop a capital project to implement these recommendations but will also look to provide some short-term improvements using other mechanisms.

Key stakeholders include local property owners, residents, business owners and consumers, commuters, and tourists. Other groups who will be affected and may have interest include local walking and bicycling advocacy groups, homeowners’ associations, environmental advocacy groups, and those associated with local business entities.

Benefits:
Growth in development in the area will result in increased travel demand, and traffic operational and safety concerns have been noted by communities in the area. New and upgraded pedestrian and bicycle facilities are needed. The goals of the project are to improve traffic operations by managing vehicular demand, reduce crash potential, improve pedestrian and bicycle accessibility, and minimize impacts to the natural and built environment.
