US -> MD 222[edit]

Can someone supply the reason that it lost the US designation. FWIW the stretch north of Port Deposit just got repaved and is a joy to drive on.--J Clear 01:15, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

As the article now states, it is due to the 90-degree turn, the low railroad bridge and the steep grades. One thing I don't understand though is why US 222 was simply not rerouted via Truck MD 222. -TheOneKEA

MD 268 -> US 222[edit]

That's new information to me: "What is now MD 222 was originally designated MD 268." Try inserting a comment that this MD 268 is not to be confused with MD 268 running nowadays along North Street in Elkton, elsewhere in Cecil County. I'm not familiar enough with this history to do it myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:52, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
