Route description

MD 262 begins at an intersection with Chaneyville Road in Lower Marlboro. Lower Marlboro Road continues west a short distance to a pier on the Patuxent River. After passing the Grahame House, the state highway heads east as a two-lane road that passes through a forested area with scattered residences. MD 262 crosses Chew Creek just before passing Mill Branch Road. The state highway passes Huntingtown Road before reaching its eastern terminus at a directional crossover intersection with MD 4 (Southern Maryland Boulevard) in Sunderland. Traffic from MD 262 cannot continue across the intersection to continue following Lower Marlboro Road to MD 2 (Solomons Island Road); instead, traffic must follow MD 4 south to its intersection with MD 2.

History

MD 262 was constructed as a gravel road from MD 2 in Sunderland starting in 1924. The state highway was built to just west of Chew Creek in 1927. MD 262 was completed to Lower Marlboro in 1928. Aside from maintenance and paving, the state highway changed very little until 2003, when a directional crossover intersection was constructed at MD 4. The section of Lower Marlboro Road between MD 4 and MD 2 was redesignated MD 262A.

Junction list

The entire route is in Calvert County.

Auxiliary route

MD 262A is the designation of the 0.21-mile (0.34 km) section of Lower Marlboro Road that runs from a right-in/right-out interchange with northbound MD 4 east to MD 2. MD 262A provides access to All Saints' Church in the triangle of land formed by MD 2, MD 4, and MD 262A.
