New Ramp To Open From I-70 Eastbound In Frederick County

It will take traffic to both directions on Rt. 144.

Frederick, Md. (KM) – A new ramp on eastbound Interstate 70 in Frederick County will be opening up very soon. The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration says the ramp from I-70 to both directions of Old National Pike will open on Tuesday, August 2nd at nine a-m. A traffic light at the end of the ramp will be activated.

The contractor for the project, Kinsley Construction of York, Pa., will use electronic signs, cones and barrels to alert motorists to the new exit ramp.

This project was a public-private partnership between Frederick County and Elm Street Development. MDOT SHA says it completed the planning study, reviewed the plans, issued permits and provided inspection services.
