Maryland Route 528 south


Going south coming from Fenwick Island, Delaware, ostensibly beach-bound traffic on Coastal Highway is welcomed to Maryland by this overhead sign, more minimal in design than many of the state's other welcome signs. At this point, Coastal Highway changes designations from Delaware Route 1 to Maryland Route 528 and enters Ocean City. Photo taken 09-05-2023.


Four blocks past the state line, the highway reaches 142nd Street, which becomes Frankford Avenue and heads toward two Ocean City parks. Photo taken 09-05-2023.


The route now passes 131st Street, with the next traffic signal at 127th visible. Photo taken 09-05-2023.


Past 127th Street, MD 528 passes the Montego Bay shopping center. Photo taken 09-05-2023.


At 62nd Street, MD 528 intersects Maryland Route 90, which proceeds across the Assawoman Bay and heads west toward U.S. Route 50 as the Ocean City Expressway. Photo taken 09-05-2023.
