(September 19, 2014) – The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will patch the concrete surface of the MD 4 (Patuxent Beach Road) Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge over the Patuxent River in Calvert and St. Mary’s counties beginning Tuesday night, Sept. 23. Crews will close a single lane from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and flaggers will guide motorists through the work zone. This routine patching will take three nights, weather permitting.

SHA’s contractor for the patching project is Allied Contractors of Baltimore through a $1.4 million, multi-location “area wide” maintenance contract. More than 27,000 vehicles cross the Thomas Johnson Bridge each day so motorists should plan extra travel time.

Customers with questions about this project may contact the District 5 Office at 410-841-1000 or toll-free at 1-800-331-5603 or by email at shadistrict5@sha.state.md.us. For the latest traffic conditions, log onto www.md511.org.

While SHA and its 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 – 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!
