MD 405 Resurfacing Begins Next Week

(April 29, 2016) – The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) is resurfacing 2.61 miles of MD 405 (Price Station Road) just south of Church Hill in Queen Anne’s County.  Work will begin Monday, May 2 and includes grinding the top layer of asphalt off, paving and striping.  Motorists should expect single-lane closures and flagging during work hours, Monday-Friday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.  This project should take approximately one month, weather permitting.

Resurfacing projects such as this provide a smoother ride, increase roadway service life and enhance safety by improving friction, drainage and visibility of pavement markings.

About 2,000 vehicles travel this stretch of MD 405 each day.  This work is being performed under a $4.8 million, multiple-location contract that SHA awarded to David A. Bramble of Chestertown.  Estimated cost for the MD 405 resurfacing is $514,000.

Construction season is well underway.  A complete listing of current roadway projects is included in e-Road Ready, the online brochure.  For more information on Work Zone Safety Awareness, visit and click on the work zone safety banner.  Maryland drivers can also know before they go by calling 511 or visiting for live traffic updates, including construction delays and lane closures.
