MD 210 Traffic Alert

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will close the MD 210 (Indian Head Highway) intersection to crossover traffic between Kerby Hill and Livingston Roads beginning this fall between October 1 and November 30 and continuing through the life of the project. Once complete, the project will replace the existing intersection of MD 210 at Kerby Hill Road/Livingston Road with an interchange and access ramps that will improve safety and reduce congestion. The $82 million project should be complete by year-end 2021.

The uneven street outside her house in the Centennial neighborhood is dirt and gravel. The crosswalks are spaced a quarter mile apart. On nearby Division Street, the main drag, streetlights line only one side of the road, and they aren’t bright enough to illuminate darker-skinned pedestrians at night anyway."
