​Traffic Shift Scheduled for Thursday, June 23

(June 21, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is continuing resurfacing work on MD 5 (Point Lookout Road) in St. Mary’s County and will put in place a temporary traffic shift between Camp Brown Road and Point Lookout State Park beginning Thursday, June 23.

Starting at 9 a.m. Thursday, weather permitting, crews will temporarily shift traffic in two segments within the project limits:

  • Along northbound MD 5 between Scotland Beach Road and Camp Brown Road; and
  • Along southbound MD 5 between Scotland Beach Road and the ranger’s station booth near the park entrance.

The traffic shift will allow crews to continue mainline resurfacing for the MD 5 improvements, which will provide additional lane and shoulder capacity along the two-mile section. Motorists should continue to use caution and be aware of flagging operations guiding traffic through the work zone. MDOT SHA’s contractor Corman Kokosing Construction, of Annapolis, is performing the work. The project is expected to be complete by late summer, weather permitting. More information on the project, can be found HERE.

Customers who have questions about this work may contact the MDOT SHA District 5 Office at 410-841-1000, 1-800-331-5603 or shadistrict5@mdot.maryland.gov. 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 the road 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.
