Known as Loveville Road, the state highway runs 2.89 miles (4.65 km) from MD 5 in Loveville north to Oakville Road in Oakville.

Route description

MD 247 begins at an intersection with MD 5 (Point Lookout Road) in Loveville. The state highway heads north as a two-lane undivided road through farmland. MD 247 intersects MD 235 (Three Notch Road) in Oakville before reaching its northern terminus at Oakville Road, the old alignment of MD 235.[1][2]


MD 247 was constructed as a gravel road between 1940 and 1942.[3][4] Aside from repaving, the state highway has changed very little since.
