Route 10 Link Set To Open Today

March 01, 1991

The commute to Baltimore from Pasadena eases tomorrow, when the State Highway Administration opens the final leg of Route 10.

The four-lane, 2.65-mile extension links Route 2 north of Pasadena Road to Route 100 south of Mountain Road. Drivers headed for the Beltway can either merge onto Route 10 or follow Route 100 to Route 3.

Either way, they will save time and aggravation by avoiding bottlenecks on routes 2 and 3.

Commuters who now enter Route 100 north of Jumpers Hole Road will avoid the congested stretch of Route 2 fromSeverna Park to Pasadena.

A mild winter last year and good soil conditions allowed highway crews to build the road faster than anticipated. The $14.4 million extension to Route 2 had been scheduled to open in November.

The road had been on the state's drawing board since 1956, when engineers planned the Arundel Expressway to run from the beltway to Annapolis.
