MD 10(N-S)/MD 100(W-E) Duplex
Maryland Routes 10 and 100 join for 0.49 miles near Lipins Corner in Anne Arundel County.
Eastbound on MD 100, the unnamed freeway that forms an arc around the south side of Baltimore. That freeway joins MD 10, the Arundel Expressway.
Eastbound on MD 100 as MD 10 mergest from the left. To stay on the respective freeways, lane changes are necessary. For example, to remain on MD 100, one must move to one of the left two lanes. The merger of MD 10/MD 100 allows access only in one direction for each freeway, e.g., one cannot go from MD 100 east to MD 10 north but can follow MD 10 south.
South of the MD 10/MD 100 duplex, MD 10 follows its final half mile of freeway before ending at a signalized intersection with MD 2, the road MD 10 was built to bypass. MD 2 leads to Annapolis.
The two lanes of MD 10 and the two lanes of MD 100 make the duplex a four-lane freeway in both directions, with two splitting to follow each separate freeway in each direction. From one direction, the opposing lanes are not visible because of the large median separation. MD 100 east continues to bypass MD 177 for a few more miles before ending at MD 177 on the way to Gibson Island on the Chesapeake Bay.
The eastern split. The first reassurance shields are posted for both freeways.
A closer view of the split. MD 10 curves to the south to meet MD 2.
From MD 2, MD 10 begins as a freeway with MD 100 as its first interchange. Like in the east/south direction, the "interchange" is more of a merger of two pairs of two-lane freeways without any ramps.
To stay on the respective freeways, lane changes are necessary, as in the opposite direction.
MD 10 north and MD 100 west merge into four lanes, which split after a half mile. MD 10 leads north to I-695/Baltimore Beltway, while MD 100 west leads west to several freeways: I-97, MD 295, I-95, and finally US 29.
The western split. Two lanes peel off in each direction.
