SHA Starts Another Road Resurfacing Project In Frederick County This Week

It will take place along a four-mile stretch of Motter Station Rd.



Rocky Ridge, Md (KM). The Maryland State Highway Administration says resurfacing will take place beginning this week along Motter Station Road (Md. 76) between Rocky Ridge Road (Md. 77) and Four Points Road. “Crews will be grinding–removal of the top layer of asphalt–patch, pave and restrip almost four miles of Motter Station Road,:”  says spokesman Charlie GIschlar.

He says work will take place Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM. ” Motorists can expect single-lane closures guided by a flagging operation” during that time, Gischlar says.

“About 1,000 vehicles a day travel on this section of Motter Station Road. Not a very high traffic volume. Still, if you’re planning traveling between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM, give yourself some extra time,” says Gischlar.

SHA says the project is expected to be completed by late-August at a cost of $1.6-million.

The contractor for this resurfacing project is F.O. Day of Rockville.
