(November 26, 2019) – Today at 10 a.m., the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will close US 1 (Conowingo Road) at the Conowingo Hydroelectric Dam (Cecil/Harford County line). The total closure is necessary for crews to make concrete repairs following an early morning crash. Crews will reopen US 1 by noon today.

Motorists will be directed to use I-95 (John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway) or US 40 (Pulaski Highway) as the alternate routes. Approximately 14,000 vehicles a day use this section of US 1. With holiday traffic increasing, motorist should allow extra commuting time.

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