Groundbreaking for Major Transportation Route

Christopher’s Crossing Through Sanner Farm

On Sept. 28, 2018, Mayor Michael O’Connor and guests broke ground for the section of Christopher’s Crossing between Clover Ridge and Walter Martz Road.

This segment connects the existing endpoint of Christopher’s Crossing in Clover Ridge to the intersection of Walter Martz Road and Poole Jones Road. Christopher’s Crossing ultimately extends from US 15 north of the City to US 40 west of the City.

“This connection is essential to the future development of the City-owned Sanner Farm, which includes multiple public facilities and is vital to providing multiple safe and efficient connections from residential areas in the northwest to downtown Frederick and US 15,” Mayor O’Connor said.

The construction contract was awarded to C. William Hetzer Inc. for $4,929,544.85, with completion expected in June of 2020.

“This infrastructure will make a big difference to commuters in the Christopher’s Crossing neighborhood, and others in NAC 3,” Mayor O’Connor said. “It’s a great day when we can work on much-needed public infrastructure.”

A road closure is planned for the intersection of Walter Martz Road/Poole Jones Road/Christopher’s Crossing scheduled to begin in September 2019 in order to construct a traffic circle at the intersection. At the present, the closure is scheduled for just over 45 days. A final detour plan will be published at least two months prior to the closure.
