The big interchange project along Branch Avenue in Brandywine, Maryland, is entering its final phase and a new traffic pattern is set to go into effect in mid-July.
Since spring, the Maryland Department of Transportation has been carefully retiring the interwoven Brandywine Road and Accokeek Road intersections with Branch Avenue.
The traffic signals for Brandywine Road were deactivated late last spring, and in a few weeks all signals for Accokeek Road will be permanently deactivated and removed.
MDOT expects the new interchange to be in its final configuration during the third week of July. Eastbound and westbound drivers on both Accokeek
Road and Brandywine Road will thereafter use the new spine road overpass, opened earlier this year, and a roundabout on the west side of Branch Avenue.
