​Resurfacing Project Requires Parking Restrictions and Flagging Operation on Main Street Beginning Next Week 

(October 7, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a pavement patching project Monday, October 10, on MD 858 F (Main Street)​ in Rohrersville, weather permitting. Crews will work 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning near the Main Street and Rohrersville School Road intersection. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the month. 

During the work, no parking will be permitted along Main Street within the limits of the active work zone. Signs will be posted identifying the area included in the parking restriction. MDOT SHA partner C. William Hetzer Inc., of Hagerstown, will us signs, barrels and a flagging operation to guide motorists safely through the work zone. 

The Move Over Law in Maryland requires motorists to make a lane change or slow down when approaching any stopped, standing or parked vehicle displaying hazard warning lights, road flares or other caution signals. The expanded law is in place to protect emergency responders and motorists who encounter a roadside emergency.  

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving and look for reduced speed limits as well as other driving pattern changes. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.

​​​Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
