Maryland Route 276 - History


The portion of MD 276 out of Port Deposit follows the path of the Old Baltimore and Philadelphia Turnpike, a collection of free and toll roads that passed through Cecil County from a ferry crossing at Port Deposit northeast through Calvert to Chester County, Pennsylvania. The segment of the highway that turned north to Rising Sun originally followed Hopewell Road from its intersection with the turnpike at Cathers Corner—now the intersection of Hopewell Road and Post Road—north to Main Street in the town of Rising Sun, following Wilson Street within the town. The Cathers Corner–Rising Sun segment of MD 276 was paved by 1910. The state highway was paved from Port Deposit toward Cathers Corner beginning in 1926. MD 276 was completed by 1933.

MD 276 was realigned to its present corridor in 1959. The state highway was designated along Kelly Road from Hopewell Road to Barnes Corner Road, which was then MD 269; on Harrisville Road north to MD 273; and along Slicers Mill Road from MD 273 to US 1 on the Rising Sun Bypass. MD 276 was moved to its present alignment from south of Barnes Corner Road to MD 273 either at the same time or some time later. The most recent upgrade to MD 276 was the construction of the roundabout at the MD 273 junction in 2003.
