Baltimore-Washington Parkway (affiliated area)

Superintendent Name: 
Gayle Hazlewood
Opening for traffic in 1954, the Baltimore-Washington Parkway is a 29-mile road running between the eastern boundary of the District of Columbia and Baltimore, Maryland. It resulted from the collaborative efforts of federal and state governments. The cooperation linked the two metropolitan areas along the "fall line" where the Atlantic coatal plain meets the Piedmont region. Initially, the parkway crossed undeveloped land, though it has stimulated considerable suburban growth since its establishment.
