Southbound US 13 Ramps to US 50 Business Resurfaced and Eastbound MD 404 to Undergo Final Paving in Advance of Busy Spring and Summer Travel Season

(April 13, 2018) – On Monday, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin resurfacing the ramps from southbound US 13 (Salisbury Bypass) to eastbound and westbound US 50 Business (Salisbury Boulevard). The ramps will be temporarily closed and detoured during paving operations through Thursday, April 19 between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Southbound US 13 motorists wishing to exit at US 50 east toward Ocean City or US 50 Business west toward Salisbury should continue south on the Salisbury Bypass to MD 12 (Snow Hill Road) and turn left on Snow Hill Road, then take northbound US 13 back to the US 50 exits. Motorists are encouraged to add extra commuting time during the resurfacing project.

On the upper Eastern Shore, MDOT SHA is underway with final surface paving on eastbound MD 404 (Queen Anne’s Highway/Shore Highway) between US 50 (Ocean Gateway) and the Town of Denton. The final paving is expected to be complete by the end of April.

Motorists should expect daytime lane closures on eastbound MD 404 between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Additionally, there will be brief, rolling closures (no longer than five minutes) during paving operations. The westbound traffic will not be impacted. Last November, MDOT SHA opened the dualized, nine-mile section of MD 404 to travelers.

While MDOT 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. 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.
