(July 11, 2016) – On Thursday, July 14, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily close the ramp from eastbound US 40 (National Pike) to northbound I-81 in Hagerstown, Washington County. The ramp closure will last approximately three weeks.  This work is part of the I-81 improvement project and is necessary to allow crews to repair and replace guardrail and traffic barriers.

During work, motorists will be directed from eastbound US 40 to Nottingham Road to westbound US 40 and back to northbound I-81.  The detour is approximately one mile long.
