ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, MD - Drivers can now find a speed camera on the Anne Arundel County section of Maryland Route 100.

Officials hope the camera will reduce speeding during a 4.4-mile resurfacing project that will take a year to complete.

The speed enforcement zone will run from the Howard County line to Route 170, also known as Aviation Boulevard, in Severn.

The camera debuted on Aug. 7 with a 21-day warning period before it issued tickets. It will start giving citations this Monday, Aug. 28.

The speed limit will remain at 55 mph in this area. Speeders could get a $40 ticket sent to the registered vehicle owner.

Highway Resurfacing Project

This roadwork will resurface the Route 100 travel lanes and interchange ramps at Coca-Cola Drive, Route 295 (Baltimore Washington Parkway), Route 713 (Arundel Mills Boulevard) and Route 170. 

Crews will also install guardrails and signs, repair drainage and update pavement markings and raised pavement markers. 

Workers will start by removing the existing asphalt pavement along westbound Route 100 near the Howard County line. 

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration expects the $9.4 million project to be done next summer.

Contractor Allan Myers MD Inc. of Fallston will perform the work. 

Crews are permitted to have single- and/or double-lane closures from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights. This will require temporary overnight detours at some times. Signage and barrels will guide drivers through the work zone.

"The State Highway Administration understands temporary and ramp closures can be an inconvenience, but the work is necessary to maintain and improve the transportation system for all," MDOT SHA said in a press release. "Drivers are asked to stay alert, stay focused, look for reduced speed limits as well as driving pattern changes, and slow down in construction zones."

Marylanders can get more information by calling the District 5 Office at 410-841-1000 or dialing toll-free at 1-800-331-5603.

A list of all major State Highway Administration projects is posted on the Project Portal and the homepage at roads.maryland.gov. Real-time traffic conditions are available at md511.maryland.gov.
