Part Of Rt 144 In Frederick To Be Paved

Works starts on May 31.

Frederick, Md. (NS) – Part of Rt 144 in Frederick will be re-paved beginning on Tuesday.

Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration workers will improve drainage, repair sections of curb, replace sidewalk ramps, and patch both directions of Rt 144 between East Street and Interstate-70 at Quinn Orchard Road on May, 31 beginning at 9 a.m.

Two miles of the road will be patched and a quarter-mile section will be paved from East Street to Carroll Creek.

On weekdays during construction, work will require a single-lane closure, and a flagging operation will be used to control traffic from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Signs, barrels, cones, and electronic arrow boards will be in place to guide motorists through the work zones.

The project is expected to be completed, weather permitting, in June.
