(May 9, 2013) – Construction work will result in closing the right lane of southbound Dulaney Valley Road (MD 146) in Towson between 11:30 p.m. Saturday, May 11 and 6 a.m. Monday, May 13.   The weekend closure of the right lane of southbound Dulaney Valley Road between Fairmount Avenue and the Towson Roundabout will allow State Highway Administration (SHA) crews to safely pour and cure two sections of concrete for Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) bus stops on Dulaney Valley Road.

The left lane of southbound Dulaney Valley Road and all entrances to shopping centers will remain open this weekend; however, SHA urges motorists and MTA bus riders to plan ahead for extra travel time between I-695 and Towson Town Center, Dulaney Plaza Shopping Center and Towson Circle.

In case of inclement weather on Saturday, the weekend right lane closure and concrete work will take place the next possible weekend (May 18-20).

The concrete pavement work at bus stops is part of SHA’s $1.9 million project to repair and resurface pavement along Dulaney Valley Road between the Towson Roundabout and I-695.  Once the concrete work is complete, contractor crews will repair and resurface asphalt pavement on this section of Dulaney Valley Road this spring and summer.  SHA’s contractor for the project is Gray and Son, Inc. of Timonium.  Weather permitting; the entire highway resurfacing project will be complete late summer.

Citizens with questions or concerns about the pavement resurfacing work along Dulaney Valley Road may contact SHA’s District 4 Office – Construction Division at 410-229-2420, toll free at 1-866-998-0367, or by email: shadistrict4@sha.state.md.us

While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes.  Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.  Slow down and don’t follow too closely.  Safer driving. Safer work zones. For everyone!
