In January 2010, commercial development near the MD75/Balwin Road intersection led to an increase in truck traffic Nearly 6,500 vehicles per day travel through the intersection. However, when vehicles continue along MD 75 southbound, they encountered a low clearance bridge at the CSX railroad crossing, with no room to turn large vehicles around. Tractor-trailers heading to the warehouse would often get stuck at the CSX bridge, sometimes blocking the road for hours.

Between January and September 2010, the State Highway Administration recorded an average of nine trucks per month getting stuck at the bridge with a clearance of 12 feet 6 inches.
