As part the Maryland Department of Transportation’s annual roads tour, representatives from the State Highway Administration met with Frederick County officials to discuss transportation priorities. As reported by the Frederick News Post:
The overall top priority remains widening U.S. 15 between I-70 and Md. 26.
However, three key changes were made possible by state funding.
Planners secured construction funding for the U.S. 15, Monocacy Boulevard interchange and a streetscape project on Main Street (Md. 144) in New Market.
Funding was also available for the design of another streetscape project on Jefferson Pike (Md. 180).
Meeting participants also brought up the possibility of a streetscape project in Libertytown. County commissioners agreed to add it to the priorities list.
