MD 180 is the old 2-lane version of US 340, bypassed by a 4-lane limited access highway circa 1970.

There are two parts of this route, the first being Jefferson Pike, and the other is Keep Tryst Rd., passing near US 340 Exit 1.

MD 181

Anne Arundel
Annapolis
MD 181 · Sixth Street [Eastport, Annapolis]
0.16 mi.; Spa Creek Drawbridge in Annapolis.

Original extent decommissioned sometime before 1999, Spa Creek Drawbridge revived 2009.

The latest 2009 Route Alert List confirms the return of 181 thus:

MD 181 – Route number re-assigned to Spa Creek bridge (Struc #2053) in Annapolis.

Originally MD 181 began at Forest Drive (which was MD 665 at the time), running north along Bay Ridge Avenue, then northwest along Sixth Street in the Eastport section of Annapolis to the bridge. It changes names to Compromise Street at the northern end of the bridge, as you enter the southern part of downtown Annapolis.

Although it was decommissioned, 181 still showed up in documents concerning the drawbridge-it may have remained state operated and thus possibly 181 may have still been on the books, but only consisting of the bridge. ADC maps still show 'Route 181' written as text along Bay Ridge Ave.

It's also the end of the Anne Arundel County cluster, now back we go to Montgomery County.

On the eastern end, it's a narrow neighborhood street which from the looks of it, would be closed as a through road or get speed bumps as soon as SHA drops the route.

Marked east-west.

Despite the loss of Connecticut Ave, 193 has grown longer over the years. Its original eastern end was at US 1 in College Park adjacent to the University of Maryland, taking a direct route through the campus. Circa 1956, the current route was built, bypassing the campus to the north, meeting US 1 near Greenbelt Rd (MD 430). There was one ramp from southbound US 1 to westbound 193, 193 then veered south to Greenbelt Rd, via which US 1 could be accessed. By 1964, MD 193 was extended east over Greenbelt Rd, taking over much of MD 430 with it, to the interchange with the B-W Parkway. Around 1968, 193 went east to MD 450 in Glenn Dale. At a later point (1970s?) came the final expansion, the bypass of the Glenn Dale grade rail crossing, taking over Enterprise Rd (MD 556) to the current eastern end of 193 at MD 202.

Connecticut Ave south of current MD 193 was once also part of 193; it seems to have been changed to 185 around the time the Capital Beltway was built, thus avoiding two interchages with the same route number a few exits apart.

MD 196 · was Old Columbia Pike

Unsigned south of Industrial Pkwy., decommissioned north of same to MD 198.

Most of this route, parallel with US 29, was decommissioned in the early seventies after 29 was completed. All that's left is a small broken frontage near 650 in White Oak. The old bridge over Paint Branch has been taken out. Route 196 is only so designated on SHA grid maps, and the back of emissions test notices, as there's a testing station on nearby Industrial Parkway. It's nowhere to be found on the free official Maryland maps, nor is there any signage.

Why the broken pieces south of Industrial Parkway were kept and not dropped like the more traveled northern part is beyond me. A similar thing happens in Ellicott City, while MD 99 east of US 29 was dropped, the old road, secret route 985, remains, in two parts.

MD 199 · was Glenn Dale Rd
from MD 564 south to MD 450.

No longer assigned (decommissioned 1953-55), entire route now MD 953.

It now dead-ends at the Amtrak crossing near 564. It appears as 199 in the 1948 and 1953 map, and gone in '55. It's now bypassed by 193. [There was a program in the 40s & 50s to eliminate railroad grade crossings with state highways. Often the bypassed section remained under state maintenance with a more obscure number. Thus the 953 number may date from 1953-55.]

Or so I thought...199 wasn't bypassed by 193, it became 193 and was later bypassed, at which time it became 953. There may have been some time between the two, being decommissioned as 199 and returning to the system as 193 (?). Thanks to Jim Titus for this correction:
    Just wanted to let you know that Md-953 is much newer than the 1950s. When I bought a house in Glenn Dale, the last two grade crossings between DC and New York were in Glenn Dale---Hillmeade Rd and Glenn Dale Rd, which was Md-193. Only when the road was re-routed as Glenn Dale Boulevard and connected to Enterprise Rd, did the Md-953 come about.  And Enterprise became 193 as well. So basically, there must have been two name changes, from 199 to 193 and then to 953.  Your info says that 193 was originally a Mongomery County number, so perhaps it went from 199 to 193 when it was first connected to 193 (or when Greenbelt Rd was connected to 193).
