Monocacy Boulevard Extension Relieves Traffic, Enhances Economic Opportunities

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Frederick, MD -- On Tuesday, June 19th, Maryland State Highway Administration opened the entire length of the Monocacy Boulevard Extension between MD 355 (South Market Street) and South Street. Monocacy Boulevard serves as part of an eastern arterial road that will relieve traffic, improve mobility for citizens and businesses, and decrease traffic congestion in other locations in and around The City of Frederick. The completion of this project will not only ease travel but will also open up the east side of the City to redevelopment opportunities as well as open up infill land for future mixed-use development.

Mayor Randy McClement said, “The City of Frederick has eagerly anticipated the opening of the Monocacy Boulevard Extension. The economic opportunities along with the physical ease of traffic are just a few of the many benefits to The City of Frederick. We thank Maryland State Highway Administration for their work and look forward to the completion of the remaining scope of work in the coming year.”
Monocacy Boulevard is located in the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Revitalization and Incentive Zone which focuses growth in areas that are already designated for growth. BRAC is the process by which the Department of Defense restructures military installations to more efficiently and effectively support the nation’s military forces, increase operational readiness and facilitate new ways of doing business. The arrival of new residents, jobs, and national defense and security activities due to BRAC bring opportunities like job growth, career and contracting opportunities and increased economic activity in our City.
The completion of Monocacy Boulevard now connects Riverside Research Park and the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research Advanced Technology Research Facility (ATRF) with Downtown Frederick, I-70, and Frederick Municipal Airport.
