Potholes are so bad on the B-W Pkwy this year that the NPS just lowered the speed limit to 40 mph between MD 197 and MD 32.

The potholes in the DC area have been worse this year than the last couple, at least where I regularly go...

Unfortunately I have to drive that daily (well Mon-Fri).  It's like a mine field masquerading as a highway.  So everybody ends up getting into the left lane which is in better shape - which leads to its own set of problems.

It was bad enough four weeks ago.  Went down there again and exited onto the Beltway and I-95 when leaving DC instead of staying on the Parkway (GPS was going to take me the B-W Parkway and then I-895, which had single lane bridge and tunnel construction this weekend).

The NPS section is looking worse than the section maintained by the City of Baltimore! Impressive in a not so good way. One can take the Parkway to I-95, but it involves a bumpy ride for a mile while in city limits.

I have heard anecdotally that signs have been posted at the NPS maintenance boundary that loudly and conspicuously advertise that MD 295 south of there is not maintained by the SHA. Does anyone have any photos of these signs?

They aren't that big, but larger than most jurisdictional boundary markers.

They are a recent installation as there were much smaller signs there prior to 2017.
