State Highway Continues Project to Improve Maryland Route 28

Since Fall 2009, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) has been constructing improvements to the intersection of Maryland Route 28 at Maryland Route 586 (Veirs Mill Road) /Maryland Route 911. To expedite project completion, SHA will begin overnight closures of up to two lanes June 7 through June 21, weather permitting, to resurface the roadway. 

Motorists can expect overnight single lane closures along Maryland Route 28 and Maryland Route 586 beginning at 9 p.m. and double lane closures between 10 p.m. and5 a.m. One lane in all directions will remain open at all times. 

The $968,000 intersection improvement includes constructing a new 500-foot left turn lane from southbound Maryland Route 28 to eastbound Maryland Route 586; extending the existing left turn lane from Maryland Route 28/ Maryland Route 586 to northbound Maryland Route 28 by 350 feet; grinding and resurfacing the existing pavement; upgrading the traffic signals with accessible/countdown pedestrian signals (APS/CPS); and upgrading sidewalks to Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.
