An action-oriented family doesn't need to go all the way to Africa to spot lions and tigers, or to Alaska to find wilderness landscapes, or to Colorado for trail riding. All these things are available to the adventuresome who explore Pennsylvania's Route 104. This fun but largely forgotten area of central Pennsylvania's Susquehanna Valley also offers a retreat for work-weary, always-connected overachievers. Here, being out of cell-phone range is a given, and computer hookups are about as common as skyscrapers.

If a day-care provider can design a highway, perhaps a county councilman can, too.County Councilman C. Vernon Gray has asked state highway designers to consider shortening exit ramps on Route 100 to make the road friendlier to wetlands, a change that he says could allow the State Highway Administration to use the highway alignment approved by the county's elected officials in 1987."

This winter's ice storms and wet weather will tack a few extra months onto the construction timetable for the Route 100 connection with the Baltimore-Washington Expressway and Interstate 95."We're running a little behind," said Valerie Burnette, spokeswoman for the State Highway Administration. The link with I-95 is now expected to open in two years.Contractors on the 7-mile, $120 million four-lane highway extension have had to focus on sediment and erosion control during the wet weather.

For a big-time highway, it's downright pathetic.At least that's what we're hearing from numerous readers these days. They regard Route 100 in Howard County as the Chihuahua of thoroughfares -- cute, but small.At the moment, Howard County's portion of Route 100 is just a 2-mile long, two-lane affair running from U.S. 29 east to Route 104. In Howard County, they have driveways longer than that.Even so, it's a mighty popular little piece of road, a useful link for local residents headed to southbound Interstate 95. Take Route 100 to Route 104 to Route 108 to Route 175 to I-95, and you'll eventually find Newt Gingrich's place.

State Highway Administration engineers yesterday unveiled what might be the peacemaker in an 18-month battle over where Route 100 will be built in southern Ellicott City.In a closed-door briefing with the Howard County Council, county administration, state legislative delegation and federal regulators, highway designers presented the newest alignments for the six-lane highway, along with their respective impacts to homes and wetlands.The newest route would avoid houses in the Hunt Country Estates subdivision off Route 103 and steer much farther from condominiums in the Village of Montgomery Run than a previous alternative.

Commuters who have become all too familiar with the Jersey walls along U.S. 29 can take heart.Not only are State Highway Administration engineers expecting to finish the Route 103-U.S. 29-Route 100 interchange on schedule this summer -- in spite of the weather -- but the county is now negotiating with the state for extra lanes for U.S. 29."There's a tremendous amount of tie-ups of traffic southbound in the morning and northbound for the evening rush hour," said County Executive Charles I. Ecker of the traffic jam that sometimes stretches from Route 175 to near U.S. 40.For that reason, the county is asking the state to add a third lane to both sides of U.S. 29 from Route 175 to the new interchange at Route 100.Like many other highway projects in the county, this one will not be paid for by the state.

Motorists trying to get onto Route 103 from northbound U.S. 29 will become the first to drive on a long-awaited section of Route 100 next week, although they will be going the wrong way.Going the wrong way won't be any problem, however, as northbound motorists on 29 are currently squeezed together with southbound motorists on the southbound side of of the highway.The squeeze is necessary because northbound lanes are being relocated about 200 feet east in the area of the Route 100 interchange.
