Route description

MD 623 begins at an intersection with MD 161 (Darlington Road) in the village of Darlington. The state highway heads north as Castleton Road and quickly meets U.S. Route 1 (Conowingo Road). MD 623 passes through the community of Berkley centered on the highway's intersection with Berkley Road. The area is part of the Berkley Crossroads Historic District, which contains the Berkley School and the Rigbie House. MD 623 intersects Glen Cove Road and crosses Peddler Run in the village of Castleton before curving to the west. The state highway turns north onto Flintville Road, which heads through a forested area. MD 623 veers northwest and crosses Broad Creek, which is wide at this point from the backwater of the Susquehanna River from Conowingo Dam. The state highway passes through the hamlet of Flintville before reaching its northern terminus at the Pennsylvania state line. Flintville Road continues north as SR 2043 in Peach Bottom Township in the southeast corner of York County.

History

Flintville Road was improved from Castleton Road to near Susquehanna Hall Road in 1950 and 1951. MD 623 was extended south to Castleton Road in 1953 and to US 1 in 1956. The highway's southern terminus was moved the short distance south to MD 161 in 1978.
