Maryland Route 176 is an east–west route in Anne Arundel County.


Route description

MD 176 begins at a cul-de-sac near Wright Rd., a local neighborhood street, within sight of its old interchange with MD 295, now used by MD 100. Continuing east it intersects the northern end of MD 713 north of that route's interchange with MD 100, itself north and east of Arundel Mills Mall. The route continues onward through suburban neighborhoods towards the southwestern corner of BWI Airport, intersecting MD 170 in Harmans. East of this intersection, it becomes part of the Airport Loop.

After intersecting MD 652, an unsigned segment of Old Telegraph Rd., the route continues along the southern boundary of BWI, eventually reaching the northern edge of Friendship Park, which contains a parking lot and observation stands, allowing people to watch planes land at the nearby runway. Continuing east, MD 176 intersects the southern terminus of MD 162; the Airport Loop designation turns onto MD 162, while MD 176 continues onward to interchange with Interstate 97 just north of the latter's interchange with MD 100.

Beyond I-97, the route skirts the northern edge of Saw Mill Creek Park before passing the southern terminus of a light rail line and terminating at MD 648, just short of MD 2 and MD 3 Business in Glen Burnie.

Formerly an arterial connector road linking Glen Burnie and BWI Airport to U.S. 1 in Elkridge, Route 176, also known as Dorsey Road, has been truncated by Maryland Route 100; Route 176's cloverleaf with Maryland Route 295 was reused by MD 100.

Dorsey Road itself has been cut into two segments. While the eastern segment remains part of MD 176, the western segment from U.S. 1 to Coca Cola Drive was renumbered 103 in an extension of that route from Howard County. MD 103's section of Dorsey Road now terminates at local neighborhood streets just past Coca-Cola Drive on the south side of MD 100.
