Baltimore, Md. (KM) – Foxville Road or Maryland 77 between Catoctin Hollow Road and the Washington County line will undergo resurfacing starting next week Spokeswoman Shantee Felix with the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration says the work is expected to begin on Monday, August 22nd at 8:00 AM.
“They’re going to be removing the top layer. They’re going to be taking out any depressions or imperfections in the road, and then adding a new top layer,” says Felix. “And we expect to be out there through October weekdays 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM so motorists should look out for us.”
The contractor, Francis O. Day Company, Inc., of Rockville, will be using signs, cones, electronic arrow boards and flaggers to alert motorists and guide them through the work zone. “We remind people to slow down and be aware of any change in speed limits or driving pattern changes,” she says.
Even though one lane of traffic will be open along four miles of roadway along Foxville Road while work is underway, Felix says MDOT SHA will maintain access to Cunningham Falls State Park.
