​Heavy Traffic is Expected in the Annapolis/Parole Region

(December 22, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will assist in managing expected heavy traffic in the Annapolis/Parole area of Anne Arundel County for the 13th annual Military Bowl (Boston College vs. East Carolina). The game will be held at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium on Monday, December 27.   

MDOT SHA will deploy two highway patrol units in the Annapolis/Parole area for approximately three hours prior to the 2:30 p.m. kick-off until any delays clear. In addition to enhanced highway patrols, MDOT SHA will deploy three portable CCTV cameras to increase their situational awareness and monitor traffic volumes.   

Motorists are strongly encouraged to plan for extra drive time in and around the Annapolis/Parole region on game day.

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving and look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.

Motorists can dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
