A Brief History

Alternate US 40 serves as a route connecting Frederick and Hagerstown in the eastern panhandle of Maryland. Paralleling I-70 and US 40 to the south, Alternate US 40 runs through Middletown and Bonesboro as the Old National Pike, a predecessor to US 40, the Baltimore National Pike, and I-70, the newer Washington National Pike.
