Maryland Route 39 (MD 39) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Maryland. Known for much of its length as Hutton Road, the state highway begins at the West Virginia state line in Hutton, where the highway continues west as West Virginia Route 7 (WV 7). MD 39, which is the westernmost state-numbered highway in Maryland, runs 6.22 miles (10.01 km) from Hutton east through Crellin to U.S. Route 219 (US 219) in Oakland. The state highway was constructed in the early 1920s.
MD 39 begins at the West Virginia state line in Hutton adjacent to CSX's Mountain Subdivision. WV 7 continues west from the state line toward Terra Alta. MD 39 heads southeast as two-lane Hutton Road through the village of Hutton. The state highway skirts the hamlet of Crellin before crossing the Youghiogheny River and turning northeast. At Old Crellin Road, MD 39 veers north and enters the town limits of Oakland, where the highway becomes Oak Street. MD 39 curves to the east, then crosses the Little Youghiogheny River into downtown Oakland. After crossing over the Mountain Subdivision tracks, the state highway meets its eastern terminus at US 219. US 219 heads north from the intersection as Third Street and east as a continuation of Oak Street.
MD 39 was under construction by 1919 between Oakland and Crellin. The highway was completed to just east of the Youghiogheny River in 1921. MD 39 was extended across the river through Hutton to the West Virginia state line in 1923.
The entire route is in Garrett County.
