Interstate 370 (abbreviated I-370) is a 3.13-mile (5.04 km) Interstate Highway spur route off Interstate 270 in Gaithersburg, Maryland to a park and ride lot at the Shady Grove station on the Red Line of the Washington Metro. Despite the number x70, I-370 does not connect to I-70 itself.

Route description

The route is a four-lane freeway that begins at the eastern terminus of the Sam Eig Highway, at its intersection with Washingtonian Blvd. The route continues east and intersects I-270 almost immediately. Beyond I-270 the road continues east and interchanges with Maryland Route 355 before curving sharply south to the station.

The I-370 designation officially ends outside the station environs, but the physical roadway runs in a full loop through the station parking lot. I-370 officially opened in August 1989; between its completion and official opening, commuters used the highway as an overflow parking lot.

Future

As of 2008, Maryland Route 200, also known as the Intercounty Connector, is currently under construction. When completed, it will run from I-370 east to Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 1 in Laurel.
