Christopher’s Crossing Sanner Project
The City's most recent phase of the CC Sanner project is complete (the segment connecting the existing endpoint of Christopher’s Crossing in Clover Ridge to the intersection of Walter Martz Road and Poole Jones Road opened the afternoon of Friday, June 26, 2020). Frederick County has announced a public meeting to discuss its portion of CC improvements on December 17, 2020 at 7PM.
- Now that this project is complete, parking will not be permitted along Christopher’s Crossing.
- An update on the expected signal at Oppossumtown Pike and Christopher’s Crossing (which is being installed by the affiliated developer) will be provided at a later date.
- Drivers are advised to use caution on the new roadway and drive at safe speeds.
The City began construction of a critical missing link of Christopher’s Crossing between Clover Ridge and Walter Martz Road in the Fall of 2018. This segment connects the existing endpoint of Christopher’s Crossing in Clover Ridge to the intersection of Walter Martz Road and Poole Jones Road. Christopher’s Crossing will ultimately extend from U.S. 15 north of the City to U.S. 40 west of the City. The project was completed in June 2020 by C. William Hetzer Inc.
Completed work includes; installation of perimeter sediment controls, rough grading of the roadway, installation of culverts for the stream crossing, utility installations including storm drain, water and sewer, street light conduits on the south side of the site, and curb and gutter installations along portions of the roadway, and construction of the traffic circle at Walter Martz/Christopher’s Crossing/Poole Jones Road.
Groundbreaking for Major Transportation Route: Christopher’s Crossing Through Sanner Farm
On September 28, 2018, Mayor Michael O’Connor and guests broke ground for the section of Christopher’s Crossing between Clover Ridge and Walter Martz Road. This segment connects the existing endpoint of Christopher’s Crossing in Clover Ridge to the intersection of Walter Martz Road and Poole Jones Road. Christopher’s Crossing ultimately extends from U.S. 15 north of the City to U.S. 40 west of the City. The construction contract was awarded to C. William Hetzer Inc. for $4,929,54485, with completion expected in June of 2020.
This connection is essential to the future development of the City-owned Sanner Farm, which includes multiple public facilities and is vital to providing multiple safe and efficient connections from residential areas in the northwest to downtown Frederick and U.S. 15, Mayor O’Connor said.
This infrastructure will make a big difference to commuters in the Christopher’s Crossing neighborhood, and others in NAC 3,” Mayor O’Connor said. “It’s a great day when we can work on much-needed public infrastructure.
