This project is 74 percent complete and is in multiple construction phases.

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (SHA) has initiated the US 1 (Baltimore Avenue) from College Avenue to MD 193 (University Boulevard) project. Currently, US 1 between College Avenue and Lakeland Road is a four-lane divided roadway, with a raised median and no shoulders. US 1 between Lakeland Road and MD 193 is a five-lane undivided roadway with double left-turn lanes and no shoulders. The existing sidewalk along US 1 is not continuous.

During construction, US 1 will be widened to provide a four-lane roadway, consisting of 11-foot wide through lanes and 10-foot wide outside auxiliary lanes which transition to turns at each intersection. There will also be a five-foot wide bicycle lane and a raised median with varying widths between two feet and 16 feet. Sidewalks compliant with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) will be provided along both sides of US 1 throughout the project limits. Other improvements include resurfacing, landscaping, drainage system upgrades, storm water management facilities, new signage and pavement markings, pedestrian lighting, intersection lighting and utility relocation work.

Updates: Fall 2023: All work from Campus Drive south to College Avenue/Regents drive is complete. This work included: WSSC work/relocations, roadway widening, drainage improvements, sidewalks, curb and gutters, traffic signals, pedestrian and roadway lighting, WMATA bus pads, landscaping and most pavement markings.

Recently completed activities include the installation of a 54-inch storm drain line along US 1 northbound from Campus Drive north to Melbourne Place. Traffic signals were turned on along US 1 at Melbourne Place, Berwyn House Road, and Berwyn Road. Construction activities will continue from Campus Drive toward the northern project limit of MD 193 (University Blvd).

Updates: Spring 2023: Road widening, water utility connection work and stormwater management continue at various locations within the project limits. Construction on the retaining wall began near the northern project limit.

Through mid to late fall, road widening and water utility connection work will continue at various locations within the project limits.
