Access Will Be Maintained During Construction
 
(March 30, 2017) –Howard County carpoolers will soon enjoy improved pavement and newly painted pavement markings at the Long Gate Parkway Park and Ride near the US 29 (Columbia Pike) / MD 100 interchange in Columbia.  The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) next week will begin a $550,000 project to resurface the 302-sapce lot; weather permitting, the project will be complete late-spring.

Motorists will have access to the park and ride during construction. SHA will use variable message signs and barrels with cautionary tape to indicate active work areas.  SHA’s contractor, C.J. Miller, Inc. of Hampstead, will mill, pave, restripe and replace signs on the popular park and ride lot, as well as the entrances from Long Gate Parkway and Meadowbrook Road.

“The pavement in the Long Gate Parkway ridesharing lot is deteriorated and needs replacement,” said SHA Acting District Engineer John Concannon.  “SHA will resurface the lot in phases to lesson impacts to commuters.”

The majority of the resurfacing project will take place at night to minimize commuter impacts.  Crews will work Sundays through Fridays between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m.  Crews may occasionally work between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.  SHA will use signs, flaggers and arrow boards to guide motorists through the work zone.  For more information about SHA’s park and ride lots, click here.

Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.  Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.  Maryland drivers can also know before they go by calling 511 or visiting www.md511.org for live traffic updates, including construction delays and lane closures.
