Maryland Route 171 (MD 171) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Maryland. Known as Church Street, the state highway runs 1.54 mi (2.48 km) from MD 2 in Brooklyn Park east to MD 173 in the Curtis Bay neighborhood of Baltimore. MD 171 was constructed starting in the late 1930s from the Anne Arundel County end.


Route description

MD 171 begins at an intersection with MD 2 (Governor Ritchie Highway) in Brooklyn Park. The state highway heads east as a two-lane street with a speed limit of 30 mph (48 km/h) through a densely-populated residential neighborhood.[1] After passing 6th Street, MD 171 enters the city of Baltimore and the speed limit decreases to 25 mph (40 km/h).[2] After passing through the Curtis Bay neighborhood, the state highway meets its eastern terminus at MD 173, which is formed by a one-way pair, Pennington Avenue southbound and Curtis Avenue northbound, on the edge of the Curtis Bay Industrial Area.[3]


MD 171 was paved in Anne Arundel County in 1935.[4] The state highway was completed in Baltimore City by 1946.[5]
