Route description

MD 287 begins at an intersection with MD 313 on the northwest edge of Goldsboro. MD 313 heads south into the town as Oldtown Road and west as Goldsboro Road.

After intersecting MD 311 (Main Street) and crossing an unused railroad grade owned by the Maryland Department of Transportation, the state highway's name changes to Sandtown Road and it heads east through farmland, crossing Broadway Branch and the upper part of the Choptank River.
