Day and Nighttime Work Is Scheduled

(November 3, 2016) – As the weather cools down, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) is continuing several safety and resurfacing projects in Prince George’s County. The projects are scheduled to be completed late fall, weather permitting.

Crews will patch, resurface and apply new pavement markings on all traffic lanes. To expedite all phases of work, crews are permitted to close one lane in both directions, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and two lanes overnight, Sunday through Friday, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.; work hours and lane closures may be amended.

Below are a list of the project locations, costs and responsible contractors:

• MD 193 (University Boulevard) between Campus Drive and US 1 (Baltimore Avenue), two and one-half miles, $4.7 million, F.O. Day Company of Rockville;

• MD 650 (New Hampshire Avenue) between Merrimac Drive and the Montgomery County line, one mile, $3 million, F.O. Day Company of Rockville; and

• MD 201 (Kenilworth Avenue) between Quincy Street and MD 410 (Riverdale Road/East West Highway), two and one-quarter miles, $9.6 million, Rustler Construction of Upper Marlboro.

Contractors will use equipment that can be disruptive to travel.  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 In case of inclement weather, SHA will continue in spring 2017 when temperatures are adequate for asphalt resurfacing.

Motorists are encouraged to plan extra travel time driving the work zones.  For the latest, up-to-date travel information, log onto
