DescriptionOpened in 1954, the parkway is a 29-mile scenic highway that connects Baltimore, Maryland with Washington, D.C. The part of the parkway from Washington, D.C. to Fort Meade,Maryland is managed by the National Park Service.

There are no tolls or fees for use on the parkway. There are no trucks allowed on the parkway.
