Route description

MD 131 begins at a four-way intersection with MD 25 (Falls Road) in Brooklandville. The west leg of the intersection is the entrance to St. Paul's School. MD 131 heads east as a two-lane road through the southern end of the suburban community of Mays Chapel. The state highway crosses over Interstate 83 (I-83) (Harrisburg Expressway) with no access and enters Lutherville, where the road has an at-grade intersection with the Baltimore Light Rail. MD 131 continues through the Lutherville Historic District and intersects Bellona Road before reaching its eastern terminus at MD 45 (York Road). Seminary Avenue continues east as a county highway that intersects MD 146 (Dulaney Valley Road) and passes through Hampton before ending at Providence Road.[1][2]

History

Seminary Avenue was paved from Brooklandville east to the rail crossing—then part of the Northern Central Railway—by 1910.[3] The remainder of the highway was paved by 1923.[4] Aside from the construction of the I-83 overpass around 1956, there has been very little change to MD 131 since then.[5]

Junction list

The entire route is in Baltimore County.
