Bald Eagle Road to be Detoured through Late Fall; Drivers Should Plan Extra Commute Time

(November 1, 2016) – Beginning tomorrow afternoon, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) begins emergency roadway slope repairs on Bald Eagle Road.  The work area is located near the inner loop of I-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway) exit ramp to MD 210 (Indian Head Highway) in Prince George’s County. Weather and progress permitting, the work should be complete late fall.

The roadway shoulder has deteriorated and will be repaired. SHA will drive metal pilings beneath the ground and repair the slope.  Once all pilings are installed, SHA will maintain through traffic to complete the remainder of the work by shifting traffic lanes within the work zone or a flagging operation.

The Capital Beltway exit ramp to MD 210 will remain open, however; motorists will not be permitted to drive through Bald Eagle Road intersection during the work. MD 210 travel lanes will remain open.

Drivers will be guided to northbound MD 210, Livingston Road and then to MD 414 (St. Barnabas Road/Oxon Hill Road) to access Bald Eagle Road via the overpass during the repair.

SHA will use electronic message boards, directional arrow panel and signage to guide motorists through the work zone detour.  Drivers should plan ahead and expect delays.

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. Customers who have questions about this work may contact Mr. Scott Wilson, SHA District 3 Area Engineer, at swilson4@sha.state.md.us or 301-513-7366.
