Route description[edit]

View west at the east end of MD 422

MD 422 begins at Polling House Road west of Lothian. Bayard Road continues west as a county highway through the hamlet of Bayard to Sands Road, which parallels the Patuxent River. MD 422 heads east as a two-lane road through farmland. After passing South Polling House Road, which meets Polling House Road in Harwood, the highway turns southeast toward its terminus at a four-legged roundabout in the village of Lothian. MD 2 (Solomons Island Road) heads southeast toward Prince Frederick and northeast in the direction of Annapolis; MD 408 (Mount Zion-Marlboro Road) heads southwest toward Upper Marlboro.[1][2]


MD 422 was constructed as a gravel road in 1929 and 1930 from Polling House Road to Lothian, which was previously known as Mount Zion.[3][4] The Lothian roundabout was installed in 1995.[5]
