US 1(N-S)/MD 222(N-S) Duplex

1 222

US Route 1 and Maryland Route 222 join for a 0.98-mile, same-way, necessary duplex through Conowingo in Cecil County.


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

Northbound on MD 222, the former US 222. US 222 was truncated to US 1 at the northern split, and to the south to US 40 and MD 7 (former US 40), US 222 became MD 222. Here MD 222 (not US 222) makes a right turn to join US 1 north. Immediately to the left is the Susquehanna River and the Conowingo Dam bridge.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

In addition to the US 222-MD 222 confusion, there is also a truck route for MD 222. To the south, MD 222 passes through the narrow streets of Port Deposit and encounters sharp turns and steep grades along the Susquehanna River east shore.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

A mile to the east, US 1, MD 222, and US 222 meet. US 222 and MD 222 are continuations of each other, and they both end and begin at the northern split.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

MD 222 ends and US 222 begins to the left. About the 90 miles to the northeast, US 222's other end becomes a state route of its likeness, PA 222, at I-78/PA 309.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

From US 1 south, there is a junction sign for MD 222 but not for US 222 as the northern end of the duplex nears.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

The truck route follows US 1 to this intersection, there it ends with a right turn onto US 222.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

The first reassurance shield for US 222 north also has an unnecessary sign for Truck US 222 north. Pennsylvania is but a few miles ahead.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

Now southbound on US 222 nearing its south end.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

US 222 ends and MD 222 begins running concurrently with US 1 south. The truck route southbound begins on US 1 northbound.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

A mile back to the west on US 1/MD 222 south, the southern split approaches.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

The southern split. US 1 crosses the Susquehanna River on a narrow bridge across the top of the Conowingo Hydroelectric Dam. Maryland DOT's records show that MD 222 in fact begins here rather than at the northern split, but signs say otherwise, connecting the two route 222s.
