Work will begin Thursday on a long-planned project to expand a portion of Route 29 in Howard County that is considered a "major commuter bottleneck" near Columbia's town center, officials said. The $32.7 million project will see three miles of northbound Route 29 widened from two to three lanes from just north of Route 32 to just south of Route 175. The work will also remove direct access points from residential streets onto Route 29 in the area, furthering the transition of the road into a controlled-access highway.

It's been about a year since the State Highway Administration closed the Route 32 exit ramp to U.S. 1 in Savage because too many cars were getting hit while nudging their way into traffic.The State Highway Administration replaced that ramp with an intersection that includes a traffic light for vehicles coming off TTC Route 32 -- a change that pleases highway officials and residents.Accident figures are not available for 1994, but in 1993 there were three ramp-related accidents, two that happened before the July 1993 closing of the ramp.

As construction of a new interchange at Route 32 and Linden Church Road enters its final stages, motorists should get ready for some major changes to the flow of traffic on that stretch of road. Starting Friday, Oct. 11, the State Highway Administration will close the old alignment of West Linden Church Road and move traffic onto parts of the new interchange. Drivers will use ramps from Linden Church Road to Route 32 and a new bridge over Route 32 instead. This traffic realignment will last about three weeks, according to the SHA. During this time, construction crews will continue to resurface Route 32 and to build ramps from Route 32 onto the new Linden Church Road.

Heavy traffic that had earlier caused backups of up to 19 miles from the Bay Bridge had completely dissipated by late Monday night. There were no backups in either direction, according to information on the Maryland Transportation Authority's recorded hotline. Officials predicted more than 300,000 vehicles would travel the Bay Bridge over the holiday weekend, but as Labor Day winded down, it appeared everyone was trying to leave the Eastern Shore at the same time. On Monday afternoon, the Maryland Department of Transportation said delays stretched 19 miles on westbound U.S. 50 from Route 404. An accident involving a plane that crashed along the highway in Bowie did not help matters, leading to lane closures and further backups to allow for a Medivac.
