The week of May 17, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) began a one-mile resurfacing project on Old Georgetown Road/ Maryland Route 187 that includes grinding and resurfacing all lanes between Center Drive and North Brook Lane. The $2 million project will last throughout the summer, and work will only be conducted at night to minimize traffic impacts.
Residents and drivers can expect lane closures Sunday through Thursday between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. SHA will provide variable message signs, drums and arrow boards to guide motorists through the work zone.
Other work includes replacing inlets, cleaning pipes, upgrading existing sidewalks to Americans With Disabilities Act standards, marking pavement, replacing curbs and gutters, installing and replacing traffic loop detectors, and upgrading traffic signals with pedestrian-oriented features.
