U.S. 1 North
A six-ramp parclo interchange joins U.S. 1 (Washington Boulevard) with the Maryland 100 freeway. Maryland 100 connects the Howard County suburbs near Columbia with northern Anne Arundel County and Interstate 97. Photo taken 07/02/10.
U.S. 1 (Washington Boulevard) sees a wye interchange with the Harbor Tunnel Thruway (Interstate 895) near the Howard / Baltimore County line. Access to Interstate 895 northbound is provided to northbound travelers for the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel and points east of downtown. There are no off-ramps between U.S. 1 and the Tunnel toll plaza. Photo taken 06/02/03.
U.S. 1 (Washington Boulevard) encounters Interstate 195 just north of I-895. A folded diamond interchange joins the two highways just north of the Patapsco River and Baltimore County line. I-195 replaced Maryland 166 (Metropolitan Boulevard) between the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus and U.S. 1. Photo taken 06/02/03.
Interstate 195 constitutes a four-mile freeway spur between Interstate 95 and the terminal of Baltimore-Washington International Airport. The freeway sees interchanges with Maryland 170, Maryland 295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway), and U.S. 1 (Washington Boulevard) in between. Photo taken 06/02/03.
U.S. 1 passes underneath Interstate 195 ahead of the westbound on-ramp to Interstate 95, UMBC, and Catonsville. Interstate 195 continues north of Interstate 95 to Maryland 166 (Rolling Road) ahead of its intersection with Maryland 372 (Wilkens Avenue). Photo taken 10/10/04.
Northbound reassurance marker posted along Washington Boulevard as the four-lane highway departs its interchange with Interstate 195. Interstate 195 opened in 1990 to join the Maryland 166 and Maryland 45 freeway spurs between U.S. 1 and Maryland 295. Photo taken 10/10/04.
U.S. 1 splits with U.S. 1 Alternate just north of Interstate 195. U.S. 1 Alternate continues Washington Boulevard northward to Halethorpe and Caton Avenue in southwest Baltimore. U.S. 1 meanwhile turns north onto Southwestern Avenue to Arbutus and Oaklee Village in Baltimore city. All traffic to Interstate 695 should take U.S. 1 Alternate as there is no direct access from Southwestern Boulevard. Photo taken 10/10/04.
A wye interchange separates U.S. 1 & U.S. 1 Alternate near the confluence of two railroad lines. Traffic to Southwestern Avenue northbound departs Washington Boulevard for Arbutus to the right. Photo taken 10/10/04.
Southwestern Boulevard begins as a three-lane roadway with a continuous center turn lane. Pictured here is a U.S. 1 northbound shield posted between the split with U.S. 1 Alternate and the Francis Avenue over crossing. A railroad line parallels the northbound side of Southwestern Boulevard to the city line. Photo taken 10/13/04.
U.S. 1 (Southwestern Boulevard) northbound at the Interstate 95 over crossing. There are no ramps between the two highways in Arbutus. Photo taken 10/13/04.
There are also no ramps from U.S. 1 onto the Baltimore Beltway as well. Traffic destined for Interstate 695 northbound however may take Linden Avenue northwest to Leeds Avenue north for the Exit 12A on-ramp. U.S. 1 (Southwestern Boulevard) passes over Sulphur Spring Road with no direct access at the intersection with Linden Avenue. Photo taken 10/13/04.
Continuing north on the five-lane Southwestern Boulevard at the Arbutus Co. 35 fire station. In the background is the Exit 12A off-ramp from Interstate 695 east (outer loop) onto U.S. 1 southbound. Photo taken 10/13/04.

Once in the city of Baltimore, Southwestern Boulevard and U.S. 1 quickly intersect Maryland 372 (Wilkens Avenue). The US Route overtakes the surface arterial from the state highway as it turns east toward Saint Agnes Hospital. The signalized intersection between Wilkens Avenue and Southwestern Boulevard represents the eastern terminus of Maryland 372. Photo taken 10/13/04.
U.S. 1 passes over a set of Amtrak lines and intersects Haverhill Road. Haverhill Road leads south from Wilkens Avenue to Benson Avenue and the Violetville neighborhood of Baltimore. Photo taken 06/27/10.
Traveling east along Wilkens Avenue (U.S. 1 north) to the intersection with Pine Heights Avenue. Pine Heights Avenue flows north from Benson Avenue to U.S. 1. An older strip mall ties into the traffic light to the left. Photo taken 10/13/04.
Six years after the previous photo was taken, not much has changed at the intersection of U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) and Pine Heights Avenue. However peaking out from behind the utility pole on the southeast corner of the intersection is an error Maryland 1 shield. This shield replaced an older-style U.S. 1 shield by 2010. Photo taken 06/27/10.

U.S. 1 Alternate returns to U.S. 1 via Caton Avenue northbound. Washington Boulevard transitions into Caton Avenue at the intersection with Patapsco Avenue at the Baltimore city line. From there Caton Avenue migrates northward to U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) and beyond to Maryland 144 (Frederick Avenue) at Hilton Parkway. Photos taken 10/13/04.
Wilkens Avenue reduces from five to four lanes as it enters the intersection with Desoto Road. A traffic light replacement project, one of many during the fall of 2004, was underway at the U.S. 1 intersection with Desoto Road. This replacement resulted in the installation of a photocop.
Desoto Road ventures southeast to Exit 50 of Interstate 95 and the Morrell Park neighborhood of the city. Photo taken 10/13/04.
U.S. 1 intersects Dukeland Street south to Cross Roads Industrial center and Hurley Avenue north ahead of Gwynns Falls. Photo taken 06/27/10.

Use Brunswick Street north four blocks to Maryland 144 (Frederick Avenue). Photo taken 10/13/04.
Wilkens Avenue divides again east of Gwynns Falls Creek. This reassurance shield appears northbound between Brunswick Street and Millington Avenue. Photo taken 10/13/04.
An original Maryland John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway trailblazer remains in place along U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) northbound between Brunswick Street and Millington Avenue. These signs directed motorists to the disjointed Interstate 95 before the 1985 completion of the Fort McHenry Tunnel. The present day JFK Memorial Highway features no unique trailblazer. Photo taken 10/13/04.
Millington Avenue flows south from Maryland 144 (Frederick Avenue) to end just south of U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) at the Carroll community of Baltimore. Photo taken 06/27/10.
A mix of 30" and 42" traffic signals govern the movements between U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) and Catherine Street one block east of Millington Avenue. Photo taken 06/27/10.
A set of 30" signals at the Wilkens Avenue intersection with Pulaski Street. A small advisory sign indicates that the local truck route continues east along Cole Street. Cole Street splits from Wilkens Avenue east of Monroe Street to S. Stricker Street. Photo taken 06/27/10.
U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) northbound at Monroe Street near Caroll Park. Two things are worth mentioning roadwise at this intersection. First, U.S. 1 splits into separate components with southbound following Monroe Street and northbound following Wilkens Avenue two blocks east to Fulton Avenue northbound. Second, Monroe Street represents the original alignment of both U.S. 301 and Maryland 3. U.S. 301, and later Maryland 3, began here and traveled south along Monroe Street to Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd (Maryland 648 - Annapolis Road). U.S. 301 became Maryland 3 when the US Route was given a new alignment via Maryland 71 along the Eastern Shore. Maryland 3 was truncated with the completion of Interstate 97 through Glen Burnie. Photo taken 06/27/10.
A second Maryland John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway trailblazer remains in place on U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue) northbound between Addison Street and S. Fulton Avenue. Wilkens Avenue continues a short distance to Mount Street and Ramsay Street before ending. The old trailblazers directed motorists east onto Ramsay Street (Cole Street east for trucks) to Carey Street south and Washington Boulevard north. Photo taken 06/27/10.
U.S. 1 turns onto Fulton Avenue northbound from Wilkens Avenue eastbound. Fulton Avenue begins two blocks to the south at Eagle Street. Note the traffic light with both a red ball and a green arrow illuminated. U.S. 1 travels the one-way street couplet of Monroe Street & Fulton Avenue between Wilkens Avenue and North Avenue west of downtown Baltimore. Photo taken 06/27/10.
Fulton Avenue varies between two and three lanes as it carries U.S. 1 through west-central Baltimore. Pictured here is the signalized intersection with Pratt Street. Pratt Street comprises the eastbound direction of Maryland 144 from Frederick Avenue to U.S. 1. The street continues beyond the east end of Maryland 144 into downtown Baltimore. Photo taken 06/27/10.
Lombard Street is an important part of the downtown Baltimore traffic flow. However west of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, the east-west street downgrades in importance as a residential thoroughfare to U.S. 1.
Lombard Street westbound intersects Fulton Avenue in this scene, becoming a part of Maryland 144 (unsigned) west to Frederick Avenue at Payson Street in the process. Maryland 144 represents older alignments of U.S. 40 from Baltimore west to Cumberland. Photo taken 10/13/04.
The confluence of Hollins Street, Frederick Avenue, and Fulton Avenue (U.S. 1 north). Frederick Avenue enters the intersection at a diagonal and is one-way leading to Fulton Avenue from both directions. Hollins Street radiates outward from Fulton Avenue perpendicularly at the same intersection. Frederick Avenue represents the original routing of U.S. 29 and U.S. 40 Alternate from U.S. 1 west to Catonsville and Ellicott City. Photo taken 06/27/10.
One block north of the historic northern terminus of U.S. 29 is the intersection with Baltimore Street. Baltimore Street provides an east-west through route between Hilton Parkway and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. 30" signals govern the movements between the two city streets. Photo taken 06/27/10.

U.S. 1 (Fulton Avenue) north at Saratoga Street, west of Franklin Square. Photo taken 06/27/10.
U.S. 1 (Fulton Avenue) northbound at Mulberry Street eastbound. Mulberry Street (former U.S. 40 east) parallels the depressed Interstate 170 freeway between Pulaski Street and Greene Street. Completed in 1979, the former Interstate 170 freeway opened as the first link of the downtown spur from Interstate 70. By the early 1980s it was clear that Interstate 70 would never be built within the city of Baltimore, so in 1983 the freeway became part of the U.S. 40 corridor. Mulberry Street comprises the eastbound frontage street of the highway. Photo taken 06/27/10.
Original button copy overhead dating from the 1979 completion of the Interstate 170 freeway. This sign directs U.S. 1 (Fulton Avenue) northbound motorists onto Franklin Street westbound for U.S. 40 west. The blank space below the U.S. 40 shield was intended for "Interstate 170 west". U.S. 40 departs the former Interstate 170 freeway below and merges with Franklin Street at Pulaski Street, two blocks to the west. From there U.S. 40 continues west to Edmondson Avenue and Gwynns Falls Park. Photo taken 06/27/10.
