I-95 at Belvidere Interchange Project

I-95 At Belvidere Road Interchange - Home

Overview

The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) is adding an interchange at I-95 and Belvidere Road that will accommodate future economic growth of the nearby Cecil County Enterprise Zone, provide more direct access to and from I-95 for trucks accessing the Zone thereby reducing truck volumes on US 40, MD 222, and MD 272, replace the existing Belvidere Road overpass with a new structure designed to convey traffic between I-95 and Belvidere Road and, include environmental mitigation and reforestation measures.

A $20 million Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation to Cecil County in 2018 to support the new interchange. The project met the grant criteria for safety, economic competitiveness, quality of life, environmental protection, state of good repair, innovation, partnership, and additional non-Federal revenue for infrastructure investments. Additional information on the grant can be found here.

Under MDTA’s supervision, the $65 million design-build job is being performed by Concrete General, Inc. with design by Whitman, Requardt and Associates, LLP.
