U.S. 40 Truck - Baltimore

U.S. 40 Truck serves in-city commercial traffic using the US route across Baltimore. The truck route bypasses U.S. 40 alignments along the couplet of Franklin / Mulberry Streets and Orleans Street between Edmondson Avenue and Pulaski Highway. Although sparsely signed, U.S. 40 Truck follows the following route from west to east:

  • Hilton Parkway north to North Avenue
  • North Avenue east to Belair Road
  • Belair Road north to Erdman Avenue
  • Erdman Avenue south to the Pulaski Highway

U.S. 1 overlaps with U.S. 40 Truck both on North Avenue between Monroe Street and Belair Road and along Belair Road between North Avenue and Erdman Avenue. U.S. 40 Truck also combines with Maryland 151 on Erdman Avenue to an interchange with Pulaski Highway at Interstate 895 (Harbor Tunnel Thruway). A companion U.S. 1 Truck route follows U.S. 40 Truck along Hilton Parkway and North Avenue between U.S. 40 and U.S. 1 respectively. U.S. 1 Truck continues south of Edmondson Avenue via Hilton Street to Caton Avenue and U.S. 1 (Wilkens Avenue). U.S. 1 Truck is signed even more sporadically than U.S. 40 Truck.
