CENTREVILLE, Md.- For some Queen Anne's County residents, the interchange project at Routes 301 and 304 has been a long time coming.
"It's long overdue but it's needed, it's definitely needed," said Meredith Lewis of Centreville.
In 2011, a deadly crash at the intersection claimed the life of a young child. Weeks later, the Maryland State Highway Administration installed J-turns to make the roads safer.
Lewis said she drives through the intersection every day to take her daughter to school and knows it is a risk every time.
"It's very dangerous especially since there is a truck stop at the corner, tractor-trailer trucks and buses try and make that J-turn and it's very unsafe," said Lewis.
SHA is now bringing plans to the table that include an overpass on Route 304.
"This overpass is the most dramatic and important thing that SHA can do to make this road safer and try to eliminate the crashes, some of which have been fatal," said SHA Community Liason Gee Williams.
The interchange project will cost over $50 million and SHA hopes to start construction in 2015. So for now, drivers will have to proceed with caution.
