MD 51 Shared Use Pathway (SHA)


The project included the addition of an off-road, 10-foot wide, two-directional shared use path with 3-foot shoulders and safety fencing along 250 linear feet of MD Route 51. The task required stormwater management quality and quantity control. MCI’s design plans utilized permeable pavement, which provides water quality benefits by reducing the impervious cover and water quantity reduction by reducing runoff. These plans included any signing and pavement marking needed. This project included obtaining the proper approvals from Highway Hydraulics Division (HHD) and MDE for stormwater management and erosion and sediment control plans. MCI prepared erosion and sediment control plans, notes and details, including any stream diversions. We also provided plans to extend the existing pipe culvert crossings.
