The Monocacy Boulevard Project nears completion and will allow vehicles and bicycles beginning today, December 12, 2019.
After many months of anticipation, The City of Frederick is thankful for the community’s patience and is pleased to announce the opening of Monocacy Boulevard between Schifferstadt Boulevard and Gas House Pike as of Thursday, December 12, 2019, at 2:30 PM. Vehicles and bicycles will be permitted to use the improved Monocacy Boulevard while final sidewalk and landscaping work is completed in the coming weeks.
“We, like our community, are frustrated in the project’s delay,” shared Mayor Michael O’Connor. “We greatly appreciate the patience of our residents, businesses, and visitors and are thankful that they will now be able to enjoy a safer and inclusive corridor to the North and East side of the city. We look forward to when the project is fully complete and open for all modes of travel.”
The City advises travelers to use caution when using the roadway as traffic patterns have changed. A new traffic signal is operational at the intersection of Gas House Pike and Monocacy Boulevard. One lane Southbound will remain closed through project completion. The area is still an active construction site.
