Maryland is reportedly getting a TIGER grant to wide Route 175 where it passes through Fort Meade.
Work along Route 175 between Disney and Reece Roads will widen the road to six lanes, as well as adding sidewalks, on-road bicycle facilities in widened right lanes and a multiuse hiker-biker trail.
The trail will go farther south than that via another project
The state has already approved $27.9 million to improve the intersections of Route 175 at Reece Road and Mapes Road in Odenton. That work will include stormwater improvements, new turn lanes, a raised median and a hiker/biker trail.
It appears the project will add 5' bike lanes and a 10' hiker/biker path along the south side of Rotue 175.
