TFP - Waugh Chapel Road, Phase 2

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 Waugh Chapel Road from Piney Orchard Parkway to Maytime Drive to improve travel conditions for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. This is a supplement to the previous study with similar objectives along Waugh Chapel Road from Maytime Drive to New Market Lane – the recommendations from that study are being implemented through a capital project that is currently in design. Modifications are being considered at several intersections to accommodate future traffic demand, but the existing through travel lanes along Waugh Chapel Road will remain. Assessments are being considered incorporating planned roadways tied to developer projects to evaluate future travel patterns in the vicinity.

Project Area Map
Upgraded bicycle accessibility is being considered in the form of modifications to travel lanes, shoulders, and parking lanes to provide dedicated space for bicycles. Additional pedestrian facilities are also being considered, including designated crossings.

Update, May 2022: The final technical report and appendices have been completed and can be viewed using the links below for informational purposes. The appendices include the March 2021 Existing Conditions Report and the May 2021 Future No-Build Analysis and Purpose-and-Need Statement.  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 summer 2021 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.
Those who will be affected by this project include local property owners, residents, business owners and consumers, commuters, and tourists. Local walking and bicycling advocacy groups, homeowners’ associations, environmental advocacy groups, and those associated with local business entities will have potential interest.

Waugh Chapel Road Phase 2
Growth in development in the area will result in increased travel demand, and existing operational and safety concerns have been noted by communities along the corridor. Some pedestrian and bicycle facilities are in need of upgrades. The goals of the project are to address current roadway design deficiencies, improve travel operations by managing current and forecasted congestion, reduce crash potential, improve pedestrian and bicycle accessibility, and minimize impacts to the natural and built environment.
