Auxiliary Lane Will Reduce Congestion and Improve Safety
Work is underway to add an additional lane on northbound US 15 between the Motter Avenue and MD 26 (Liberty Road) interchanges in Frederick to improve safety and traffic flow.
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) recently started constructing the new auxiliary lane, which is expected to open to traffic spring 2016, weather permitting. The $2.5 million project is one of several interim steps SHA is taking to improve safety and reduce congestion on the busy US 15/I-270 corridor.
Transportation Secretary Pete K. Rahn recently toured the project with Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner.
