Driving Directions to and from the MOS Orchid Auction
(Dewey Lowman Post 109)
NOTE: Although the Post is in Halethorpe, but you may see signs telling you that you are going toward Arbutus; that is OK. A Link to a Map of the Area is available at:
From the NORTH:
Take I#695 South toward Glen Burnie. Exit onto I#95 South as if going toward Washington, D.C. The exit splits; bear right immediately, exiting onto Sulphur Spring Road. At the traffic light, take a right onto Benson Avenue. Take an immediate right onto Old Sulphur Spring Road (a 1/2 block after light - the street sign says Sulphur Spring Road). At the end of the block, where the road dead-ends, make a left into the Post, and park near the building.
From the SOUTH:
Take I#695 North to Washington Blvd. (Exit 10, Alt US#1). Turn left to onto US#1 South. Turn right at the light onto Sulphur Spring Road (there is a Burger King on that corner). At the first traffic light, take a right onto Benson Avenue. Take an immediate right onto Old Sulphur Spring Road (a 1/2 block after light - the street sign says Sulphur Spring Road). At the end of the block, where the road dead-ends, make a left into the Post, and park near the building.
From the WASHINGTON AREA:
If you are taking the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (MD#295), when you get to the Baltimore Beltway (I#695), go toward Towson, and follow the directions given "From the South."
If you are taking I#95, there is no direct way to get to the Auction in Halethorpe. The easiest way from I#95 is to take I#195 toward Baltimore-Washington International (Thurgood Marshall) Airport (the exit is about 1/2 mile after the exit for the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I#895)), before I#95 gets to the Baltimore Beltway (I#695). Go about 2 miles to MD#295, exiting north toward Baltimore. Go about 2 miles to the Baltimore Beltway (I#695), and exit toward Towson. Follow the directions given "From the South."
To return HOME via the Baltimore Beltway:
Exit Dewey Lowman Post parking lot driveway, turning right on Old Sulphur Spring Road. Go about 2 blocks to Benson Avenue. Turn left, go a short block, then go left again onto Sulphur Spring Road. Go about 0.8 miles to the light at Washington Boulevard (Alt US#1). Turn left, go about 0.2 mile, then watch for the exits on your right onto the Baltimore Beltway (I#695), south toward MD#295 is first, then the second exit is north toward Towson or I#95 south.
