NSA commute gets easier

County residents who commute on Route 32 to the National Security Agency no longer have to snake around traffic barriers to cross the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, thanks to a new bridge that opened yesterday.

The bridge, which takes the eastbound lanes of Route 32 over the parkway, is part of a $5.6 million project to improve the interchange, which is just over the Anne Arundel County line.

The project also added three loops to the interchange to make it a full cloverleaf, and a two-lane ramp from the northbound parkway that feeds traffic onto eastbound Route 32 and

allows motorists to enter NSA without having to get on Route 32.

The new configuration should make driving easier for motorists coming from Howard to get onto the northbound parkway. Until yesterday, they had to line up for a left-turn signal to get on a single northbound ramp.
