Springtime Road Resurfacing Project Underway in Frederick & Howard Counties

Motorists can expect daytime single lane closures.

FREDERICK, MD   The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will resurface several sections of MDOT SHA-maintained roads in Frederick and Howard counties this spring. The resurfacing and pavement patching projects will be complete mid-summer. MDOT SHA is completing the work through a $12 million area-wide contract. This approach allows engineers flexibility to address deteriorated pavement conditions on multiple roads simultaneously across the region. In addition, crews will replace damaged guardrail.

Here is a list of the highway segments to be improved:

Frederick County

MD 75 (Green Valley Road) between I-70 and Jones Road
MD 17 (Burkittsville Road) between Brownsville Pass Road and Picnic Woods Road
I-70 between the Washington County line and Ridge Road and
MD 355 (Urbana Pike) on the approaches to the Monocacy River Bridge.

Howard County

US 29 (Columbia Pike)/Gorman Road/Johns Hopkins Road interchange
I-95/MD 32 interchange bridge approaches and ramps
US 29 between I-70 and US 40 (Baltimore National Pike) and the US 29 Bridge over Frederick Road
MD 100 at Executive Park Drive, US 1 (Washington Boulevard) and Snowden River Parkway
Dorsey Run Road (MD 732 R) at Henkels Lane.

Motorists should expect daytime single lane closures between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Crews are also permitted to work at night between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings. MDOT SHA’s contractors will use cones, barrels and flaggers to guide motorists through the work zones.
