​Daytime Resurfacing Work Will Continue Through Late June 

(May 2, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a project Tuesday, May 3, to resurface sections of asphalt pavement on MD 145 (Sweet Air Road) in the Jacksonville area of Baltimore County. The work will improve the driving surface and is expected to be complete by late June.      

MDOT SHA contractor crews will patch, mill and resurface sections of MD 145 from MD 146 (Jarrettsville Pike) to Manor Road. The $607,000 project will involve crews working between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays and between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturdays.  

There will be temporary single-lane closures, lane shifts and flagging operations during daytime work hours along sections of MD 145. At each location, temporary traffic signs, reflective barrels and electronic arrow boards will alert and guide motorists through the work zone. MDOT SHA contractor Allan Myers – MD Inc., of Fallston, is conducting the project.    

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.
