50 301

US Routes 50 and 301 join for 43.0 miles from Bowie to Queenstown in Prince George's, Anne Arundel, and Queen Anne's Counties. Unsigned Interstate 595 and Maryland Route 2 join near Annapolis for the I-595/US 50/US 301, I-595/US 50/US 301/MD 2, and US 50/US 301/MD 2 multiplexes. This page covers the part of the multiplex east of MD 2 where only US 50/US 301 runs.

US 50 east/US 301/MD 2 north where MD 2 north splits. I-595 ended a couple of miles ago. US 50/US 301 continues eastward on a substandard expressway. Just east of this MD 2 exit, MD 648 intersects the freeway with little notice.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

After MD 648, Bay Dale Drive serves the Arnold area on the Broad Neck peninsula. Broad Neck is surrounded by the Severn River, the Magothy River, and the Chesapeake Bay, over which US 50/US 301 eventually crosses.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

MD 179 leads to Annapolis to the south.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

Since MD 179 ends at the interchange, the exit to what would be MD 179 northbound is not assigned a route number. Cape Saint Claire Road leads unsurprisingly to the town of Cape Saint Claire. College Parkway bypasses Arnold to the north and connects to MD 2.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

Reassurance shields between the freeway and the frontage road that runs from the MD 179 exit east to the end of the peninsula. There are frontage roads on both side of the freeway, and each is a segment of MD 908, formerly MD 179.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

The next exit is just a right turn lane to the frontage road.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

Only a few feet lie between the freeway and the frontage road. Traffic has to slow way down to "exit," then stop before turning onto the frontage road.

 


Timothy Reichard 9/8/02

The next exit is the last before US 50/US 301 crosses the Chesapeake Bay on the William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial Bridge, better known locally as the Cheasapeake Bay Bridge or just Bay Bridge. Sandy Point State Park occupies the east fringes of the peninsula.
