That will allow crews to replace a damaged drainage pipe which goes under the roadway. That job is expected to be completed by 3:00 PM. .

Traffic will be detoured using Araby Church Road which connect to Route 355 north and south of the project’s limits. Local access will be available for residential and commercial traffic.

MDOT SHA urges drivers to stay alert when traveling through work zones, and be aware of reduced speed limits and driving pattern changes.
