Motorists Should Follow the Posted Detour

(June 30, 2017) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will resurface two sections of MD 62 (Twin Spring Drive) through Chewsville, in Washington County.  Weather permitting, the $300,000 project will be complete late July. 

MDOT SHA’s contractor, C. William Hetzer of Hagerstown, will patch, grind (remove the top layer of pavement), resurface and restripe the roadway. Approximately 3,000 vehicles use this section of MD 62 each day.

Motorists should follow the posted detour which includes directing traffic at the MD 64/804 intersection down White Hall Road. Local traffic will encounter a flagger, who will assist with local access/entry. Motorists should plan extra travel time during the work. Crews will work Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The e-Road Ready 2017 electronic construction brochure is now available by clicking here.  The e-brochure highlights major road construction and maintenance projects in each of MDOT SHA’s seven engineering districts which cover Maryland’s 23 counties.

While MDOT SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver need to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. 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.
