to open June 5, 2006
The county began work on Phase 1 in October 2002.
Construction of the road by Jimmy Richards & Sons Excavating Inc. began in May 2005.
The 8,300-foot Phase 2 is lagging behind.
As of February, county officials said that the road was 10 months behind schedule, due to a protracted property purchasing process. The road required the purchase of 15 properties, five of which where acquired through condemnation.
Officials planned to open Phase 2 in spring 2007. However, the latest estimate is October 2007.

Charles County’s road building program is staying on pace….. the dualization and extension of Rosewick Road.
Nov 28, 2007 Delusional Duck -everybody remember Phils pictures?
...the new County designed/built Rosewick Road extension that leads from Radio Station Road/Rosewick Road and connects to Smallwood Parkway; the bridge the County designed/built washed out during the last “severe” rainstorm we had…the rain washed all the dirt and support under the bridge pilings… they’ve brought in some specialist from West Virginia to shore the bridge up and come up with a plan to save and “fix” it without tearing down the whole thing and starting over… apparently the idea now is going to pour concrete under the whole thing and turn the stream there into a huge concrete culvert.
UPDATE: We were just contacted by a trusted source that our rumor is NOT true. More to follow as we learn the details. ….…
The Rosewick extension going east toward 488 is the section. If you are on that road you have to still turn at Radio Station even though the new road looks completed as far as the eye can see.
* A member of a contractor group has said the bridge was under- cut during the huge storm and has to be repaired. This is a new bridge…….
* Sources tell be that the bridge referenced above was neither designed by or constructed by the county. It is located on the portion of the extension of the St. Charles Parkway and there are NO problems with it.
* The rumor can only be that. Certainly all of those people driving through the constuction site every day could attest that no one is filling the creek bottom with concrete. Besides, who would bring in a specialist from West Virginia to solve a problem of that magnitude when we have so many of those rocket scientists working for the county currently.
