Route description

MD 520 begins at a boat ramp at the southern end of Whites Neck adjacent to the mouth of Whites Neck Creek at St. Catherine Sound, an embayment of the Wicomico River. The 18-foot (5.5 m) wide two-lane state highway heads west then north through farmland. MD 520 veers northeast through a forested area before crossing Whites Neck Creek and reaching its northern terminus at MD 239 (Bushwood Wharf Road) near the community of Bushwood.[1][2]

History

MD 520 was constructed as a gravel road in 1933.[3] The state highway was widened and resurfaced with bituminous concrete in 1956.[4] MD 520 has changed very little since then.
