I agree.  Those signals had been the scene of some spectacularly bad crashes over the years.

But the traffic volumes on this section of Md. 32 (between I-70 at Cooksville and Md. 108 at Clarksville) merit a four-lane highway with full access control (and maybe a reconstructed interchange at I-70 and 32, since the existing diamond is not appropriate for a junction of two controlled-access highways).

I recall reading someplace that this section of 32 has the highest ADT or AADT or AAWDT of any two-lane undivided road in Maryland.

The 2010 AADT for 2-lane MD 32 in Howard Co. was 27,440 south of the new Burnt Woods interchange to MD 108 in Clarksville, and 23,920 up from there to I-70.  It's higher north of the I-70 interchange toward Sykesville, increasing to 24,320.  Would have to think (for now undivided) MD 404 has that beat somehow on AAWDT in summer.

If it was my decision, Md. 32 would be four lanes divided all the way from Clarksville (Md. 108) at least to Sykesville (Md. 851) - and probably to Eldersburg (Md. 26), and full access control between Md. 108 and I-70.

You are almost certainly correct about Md. 404 having higher summer weekend volumes of traffic.

Do you know when the dualization of Md. 404 between Denton and U.S. 50 might be completed?
