May 6th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The highway project at Grantsville that includes realignment of a portion of U.S. Route 219 and a new fourlane section of road is finished and will open Thursday, according to the Maryland Department of Transportation.

The 1.4-mile section of 219 provides additional space for through-truck traffic along U.S. 219 Business, allowing improved separation from local traffic. The four-lane highway has two 12-foot lanes, an 8-foot inside shoulder and a 10-foot outside shoulder in each direction. It also includes two roundabouts, turn lanes connecting to U.S. 219 Business and a new median.
