U.S. 15 North
A folded diamond interchange joins U.S. 15 (Catoctin Mountain Highway) with MD 140 (Main Street west / Taneytown Pike east) outside Emmitsburg. The expressway continues north from MD 140 to an intersection with North Seton Avenue (the former alignment of U.S. 15). Photo taken 06/04/05.
Seton Avenue ends at U.S. 15 opposite Welty Road north from Harney Road. A set of flashers advise caution to motorists as U.S. 15 leaves the Emmitsburg area. Photo taken 06/04/05.
Old Gettsyburg Road (former U.S. 15) stems north from Welty Road to the east of U.S. 15 (Catoctin Mountain Highway) toward the Pennsylvania state line. Bicyclists should not use the U.S. 15 expressway north of Seton Avenue due to the transition into a full freeway in PA. Photo taken 06/04/05.
Approaching the Mason Dixon Line, U.S. 15 upgrades to a full freeway. Old Gettysburg Road becomes Emmitsburg Road in Pennsylvania and U.S. 15 Business leading north to Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg. A diamond interchange with the original U.S. 15 lies 1.75 miles north of the Maryland line. Photo taken 06/04/05.

This diagrammatic overhead sign shows that U.S. 15-340 will exit southwest en route to Charles Town and Leesburg, while the main lanes extend U.S. 40 east to I-70 and Interstate 270 south. Photo taken 10/12/01.
This interchange marks the northern terminus of U.S. 340, and U.S. 15 exits off of its own freeway at this point, leaving U.S. 40 to carry the freeway solo southeast to the exchange joining I-70 and I-270. Photo taken 10/12/01.
