Historic Main Street Corridor to Benefit; Daytime Lane Closures Needed 

(March 31, 2017) – The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) is improving storm drainage on MD 222 (Main Street) through downtown Port Deposit in Cecil County.  Weather permitting, the project should be complete summer 2018.
 
Crews from Pessoa Construction of Fairmont Heights are installing new storm drain inlets and pipe culverts from Granite Avenue to the south town limits near Marina Park, a total of 1.34 miles.  MD 222 is low-lying and has a history of flooding during rain storms, as well as snow melt.
 
The $4.6 million project also includes relocation and replacement of water and sewer facilities.  Crews may need to close one lane and control traffic with a flagging Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.  Nearly 3,000 vehicles travel MD 222 through Port Deposit each day.

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.
