MD 214 Corridor Changes

The County is proposing changes along MD 214 (Central Avenue) from MD 468 (Muddy Creek Road) to its eastern terminus, immediately east of Oakford Avenue in Beverly Beach. It has updated its analysis of the project based on comments from their open houses. Several Loch Haven residents participated in these open houses. LHCA has concerns including safety at intersections, stormwater management, and maintaining a reasonable road width with shoulders for emergency vehicle access. More information is available here.

Bay Crossing Study

One of the three options being considered for the new Bay Bridge would link the Mayo Peninsula and Easton. See map.
