The project limits will extend from the Maryland State line to Casho Mill Road. The project will include work on Otts Chapel Road and SR4 as well as several other intersecting roadways.
The project is needed to address the deteriorating concrete pavement on Elkton Road and to reduce traffic delays along the corridor. Elkton Road is frequently used by pedestrians and cyclists, however, with no continuous sidewalk facilities, pedestrian improvements are also needed.
The project proposes to add an additional travel lane between the intersection of Otts Chapel Road and SR4 Christiana Parkway. This project also includes a full depth reconstruction of Elkton Road inside the project limits. The intersection of McIntire Drive, Otts Chapel Road, Interchange Blvd, Patriots Way, SR4 Christiana Parkway, and Christina Mills Drive will be improved as part of the project as well. These modifications are proposed to address capacity issues as well as safety concerns. A multi-use path facility will be added to the length of the project.
