The Maryland State Highway Administration has completed safety improvements at the intersection of Cove Point Road and Little Cove Point Road in Lusby.

A new dedicated right-turn-only lane on Cove Point Road allows eastbound motorists to turn safely on to Little Cove Point Road. Associated right-turn arrow painting is also complete.

The improvements were the result of a traffic study commissioned by Dominion as part of its application for the Cove Point liquefied natural gas export project. All costs for the work were borne by Dominion.
