Route description[edit]

MD 624 begins at an intersection with MD 165 (Pylesville Road) in Pylesville. Grier Nursery Road heads south from the intersection as a county highway toward the village of Street. The state highway heads north through residences on large lots and farmland and crosses Broad Creek. After intersecting MD 136 (Whiteford Road) in the hamlet of Graceton, MD 624 curves to the west to meet its northern terminus on a tangent with the Pennsylvania state line.[1][2] Graceton Road continues west on top of the state line as SR 2080 to an intersection with PA 851 near Fawn Grove.[3]
