Army plans to construct new Fort Meade entry

A new entrance to Fort Meade being built at state Route 32 and Mapes Road is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.

The Army base said in a written statement that its construction project will not interfere with plans by the State Highway Administration to revamp the intersection, which also includes Route 198.

The entrance will provide visitor information to "create an awareness of one's arrival at Fort Meade," the statement says. It also will serve as a security post to allow military police officers to perform spot checks on cars.

The $81,300 project, which began March 26, is being paid for with fiscal year 1992 funds.
