State Highway Holding Open House for Belair Road Project

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will host a public open house, Thursday, May 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. for an improvement project along US 1 (Belair Road) from the Baltimore City line to I-695 in Overlea.

The open house will be held at the Fullerton Community Center, 7209 Belair Road, Baltimore County.

The State Highway Administration is revising a previous concept focused primarily on traffic operations based on feedback gathered at a listening session with State Highway Administration representatives, local officials and citizens.

SHA is developing a new concept to improve safety, connectivity and accessibility for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users along the corridor.
During the open house, attendees can view design details along with maps and displays that highlight the proposed revised design. There will be no formal presentation. State Highway Administration representatives will be on hand to answer project-related questions and listen to your feedback. The public is encouraged to attend any time between 5-7 p.m. More details on the US 1 project can be found on the Project Portal page here.

Please indicate the desired language in the subject line. Maryland Relay Service can assist teletype users at 7-1-1. Any questions about the open house or general inquiries can be directed to Jill Smith, Project Manager at​.
