D.C. Roads - DC 295




Kenilworth Ave. SB, the frontage roads for DC 295, just south of the DC border where the route begins. DC 295 doesn't turn into MD 295 right away; the Baltimore-Washington Parkway goes unnumbered when it's Federally maintained. Before I-95 was built between the DC and Baltimore Beltways, the entirety of the 295/B-W/295 highway was signed TO I-95 in both directions, and at that time the B-W Parkway may have been signed as MD 295 for continuity's sake. (It's still considered MD 295 by Maryland, but only for reference purposes.) Technically, the B-W Parkway follows US 50 from the Kenilworth Ave. Freeway to the DC line, meaning a tiny piece of the Kenilworth Ave. Freeway goes unsigned as MD 201 before becoming DC 295. (MD 201 follows Kenilworth Ave. to the north.)


Actually, I-295 doesn't begin here, southbound at the end of DC 295. I-295 comes in from the right, where it's coming from I-695 (the Southeast Freeway) via the 11th Street Bridge. The correct signage would read "END DC 295" "SOUTH I-295" (or just surreptitiously let people follow the new shield without announcing it).


A bunch more shields to tide you over, at the following merges: Pennsylvania Ave., Capitol St., Benning Rd.
