Calvert Cliffs State Park Improvements

Maryland Department of General Services

Calvert Cliffs State Park is a day-use park featuring a sandy beach, unique fossils, recycled tire playground, a freshwater and tidal marshland and 13 miles of hiking trails located in Calvert County.  The existing roadway and infrastructure did not meet current code and design standards and the existing roadway and parking areas were failing due to heavy use and heavy rainfall.  The improvements designed by BAI rectified existing road and parking deficiencies and provided a safe and controlled facility for the public. BAI’s design included the construction of a new asphalt loop road, existing road and parking lot improvement, additional parking areas, stormwater management and drainage improvements, utility relocation, site grading, stabilization and landscaping.
