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

  • Make Monocacy Boulevard straighter, safer, less likely to flood and able to serve four lanes of traffic - two in each direction
  • Construction of a new bridge over the Monocacy River, and rehabilitation of the existing bridge, providing improved accommodations for pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Installation of a traffic signal at the intersection of Monocacy Boulevard and Gas House Pike

The project to realign and widen Monocacy Boulevard continues toward completion.

Construction of the new bridge is substantially complete, and repairs to the existing bridge have significantly progressed. The large new retaining wall adjacent to Carroll Creek is complete, with the adjacent roadway and shared use path to subgrade. Overhead utility line relocations and water and sewer installation is complete, with storm drainage installed and storwmwater management facility work in progress. The new signal at Gashouse Pike is installed and awaits activation. Street light installation has begun in the north end of the project. Curb and gutter installation and base paving of approximately two-thirds of the project is complete with the remaining curb, gutter and base paving scheduled to occur over the next month.

The roadway will be opened to traffic once the contractor has brought the work to substantial completion. The City appreciates the public’s patience. We have planned this major transportation project to improve traffic flow from the southeast to northeast areas of the City, providing alternates to northbound U.S. 15.
