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.


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

The Kent Narrows Bridge connects Kent Island to the Eastern Shore.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Exit 42 leads, like the previous Exit 41, to MD 18/Main Street.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Exit 43A also leads to MD 18/Main Street in Grasonville. Note the 10 mph exit speed. The exit is just a right turn.


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Chester River Beach is to the north of Grasonville, along the Chester River, which appears as a branch of the Chesapeake Bay.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Station Lane also leads to Grasonville, which is now just off the right side of the expressway.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Evans Avenue is yet another road to Grasonville.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Hess Road, like just about every other exit since the Kent Narrows, leads to MD 18/Main Street, but this exit leads east of Grasonville.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

The penultimate exit is for Nesbit Road, still another connector to MD 18.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

After about 20 miles of sharing the freeway and expressway, US 50 and US 301 finally split near Queenstown.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

US 50 exits from the US 301 mainline and turns south to Easton and then east to Salisbury and Ocean City. US 301 traverses 40 miles of Maryland to lead to northern Delaware.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

Now on US 50 westbound at the eastern split. The dual roadway splits into a forest.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/22/03

After passing through the forest, US 50 swings to the west and joins US 301 south toward the Chesapeake Bay.
