(August 12, 2015) – Road relief is coming for motorists who travel along MD 108 (Ashton Road) in Montgomery County. Beginning Monday, August 17 (weather permitting), the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will start a $1.2 million resurfacing project on two and one half miles of MD 108 between MD 650 (New Hampshire Avenue) and the Howard County line. Weather permitting, the work should be complete by late fall.

The resurfacing includes roadway patching, removing the top later of asphalt, applying new asphalt and installing new pavement markings on the roadway. Residents and travelers are advised that equipment used for construction can be loud and disruptive.

To expedite work, crews are permitted to temporarily close one lane in each direction of MD 108 seven days a week between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and overnight, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

In addition to this project, drivers may also encounter mobile or short-term work zones. Click here for an updated listing of major SHA projects in Maryland. Always expect the unexpected, pay extra close attention and drive slowly through any work zone. Whether it’s a tree trimming operation or a bridge project, be aware when orange is there: Think Orange (the color of construction equipment and signs), stay alert and slow down. Everyone is at risk.
