Find below MCDOT’s plans for the Western Workaround, Phase Two. Confused about what this oft-mentioned project will do? You’re not alone.
Basically, the Western Workaround is going to get rid of the big curve on Old Georgetown Road near Executive Boulevard and open up Towne Road (the current dead-end road behind Pike and Rose.) The Western Workaround will create a new intersection with Executive Boulevard, Old Georgetown Road, and Towne Road. The Western Workaround will help create the grid of streets, bike lanes, and walking paths that will make the White Flint/Pike District easier to get around.
Eventually, the part of Executive Boulevard near the Conference Center will connect with Grand Park Avenue in Pike and Rose, crossing over Market Street, the new road behind the Conference Center that was part of Phase One of the Western Workaround.
