​Crews Replacing Damaged Guardrail 

(Aug. 9, 2022) –The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will perform emergency guardrail repairs on the westbound MD 90 bridge between St. Martins Neck Road and MD 589/Racetrack Road in Worcester County tonight. 

From 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10, crews will close westbound MD 90 in order to replace the damaged guardrail. Westbound motorists can use US 50 as an alternate route. Eastbound motorists are advised to use extreme caution and stay alert while traveling around work crews. 

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.
