Maryland Roads - MD 5


MD 246 SB signal overhead.



Point Lookout is still in Maryland, which was on the side of the Union, but it's so far south that it has a Confederate monument and cemetery. Yes, that's the Rebel Flag flying high in Union Jack country.


An old alignment just to the north, seen NB.


NB and SB historical signs at Rosecroft Rd. (former Mattapany St.) and Old State House Rd.


Unique green business shield and another historical sign. That does say "BUSINESS" where "MARYLAND" ought to go. The Business tag probably belongs just above the 5.


MD 5 becomes a divided highway and gets up to six lanes at some points. After Suitland Parkway, it's back down to two again for the rest of the ride. Which is 500 feet to the DC line.
