NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN IMPROVES SAFETY ENTERING & EXITING HALLOWING POINT PARK

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Sept. 22, 2017 – The Calvert County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office announce a new weekend traffic pattern for exiting Hallowing Point Park in Prince Frederick.
Effective immediately, all motorists must turn right on MD Route 231 when exiting Hallowing Point Park Saturdays and Sundays during park hours. Motorists wanting to travel east toward Prince Frederick will be directed to turn right onto Skipjack Road at the Calvert Industrial Center, go around the circle on Skipjack Road and return to the traffic light on Route 231 to turn left. Signs were put in place today to direct motorists on the new traffic pattern.
“More than one thousand families utilize Hallowing Point Park on the weekends, especially now during fall youth sports,” explained Department of Parks and Recreation Director Shannon Nazzal. “This change is necessary to ensure everyone’s safety until a permanent solution can be put in place.”
“As with any change in traffic patterns, we urge drivers to use caution this weekend and every weekend as we all adjust,” said Sheriff Mike Evans. “Unfortunately, last weekend  a deputy received minor injuries after being struck while directing traffic at the entrance to the park. These measures will help to keep the intersection safe while we seek a more long-term solution.”
Nazzal said she is working with county and state officials to look into the possibility of installing a traffic signal at the current entrance of the park, or securing a second point of entry and exit.
