What can be done about wrong-way accidents on Route 50?

The State Highway Administration will provide some answers on the wrong-way fatalities at a meeting Wednesday night, sharing their findings about the accidents that have claimed several lives in the past two years and the steps taken to prevent future wrong-way events.

The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at Magothy River Middle School, 241 Peninsula Farm Road, in Arnold.

State Sen. Ed Reilly, R-Crofton, said he had been asking SHA to hold a meeting for area residents seeking answers.

“And citizens have a pocketful of suggestions for solutions, too. They have been emailing me with creative ways to fix this,” Reilly said. “I want to make sure SHA hears this stuff.”

SHA officials will open the meeting with a presentation about actions taken to date, mostly erecting a plethora of Wrong Way and Do Not Enter signs on several ramps along Route 50, then open the floor to questions from the audience. Click here to continue reading…
