CALVERT COUNTY IS BECOMING THE ENERGY CENTER OF MARYLAND

This article describes the favorable industrial and economic position of Calvert County in Maryland. It is the site of the only nuclear energy generating facility in Maryland. Another energy facility situated in Calvert County is the Receiving Terminal for a major liquid natural gas corporation. These two industrial installations have had a direct impact on the economy of the County. The Calvert Industrial Park, a 200 acre site, has water, sewerage, and full depth asphalt roads. The numerous residential developments being built throughout the County have created the need for strong sub-division regulations. Under these regulations, roads are classified according to usage. These types are rural, residential, arterial, and commercial-industrial. The heavier the traffic the more width, drainage, and road material is required. Hot mix asphalt surfacing is specified for all types and these roads are paid for by the developer and eventually turned over to the County for perpetuation. Calvert County has a 225 mile network of county roads, which are recognized as valuable assests and are well maintained. Hot mix asphalt overlays, consisting of one or two courses, and from 2 to 3 1/2 inches thick are used for upgrading the roads. The State Highway Administration operates and maintains 115 miles of state highways in the County as well as maintaining the County roads, with the County paying the cost.
