The purpose of this project is to improve capacity and traffic
operations along MD 180 and MD 351 from Greenfield Drive to Corporate Drive, while supporting existing and planned development. This is an area that is experiencing rapid growth. Commercial and residential developments in the study area have contributed to heavily congested roads and high traffic volumes, especially during peak periods.
