Monocacy Boulevard Project

The Project

The Monocacy Boulevard, Central Section Phase 2 project extends from the intersection of Monocacy Boulevard and Gas House Pike to the intersection of Monocacy Boulevard and Schifferstadt Boulevard. The project includes the construction of approximately 3,550 linear feet of a four-lane roadway inclusive of a new two-lane bridge and the rehabilitation of the existing two-lane bridge over the Monocacy River. The project also includes a new traffic signal at the intersection of Monocacy Boulevard and Gas House Pike. The road will have much the same character as Schifferstadt Boulevard, and the most recent portion of Monocacy Boulevard, with sidewalks, a shared use path, landscaped medians, etc.

What the Monocacy Boulevard Project Accomplishes
