Single-Lane Closure, Flagging Operation Expected Friday Evening Through Monday Morning
(February 6, 2023) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will replace an underground pipe this weekend on MD 12 (Snow Hill Road) just north of Old Furnace Road in Snow Hill. The project will start at 6 p.m. Friday, February 17, and is expected to be complete by 5 a.m. Monday, February 20, weather permitting. The previous start date was delayed because of weather.
As part of the project, crews will implement a single-lane closure and flagging operation on MD 12 for the duration of the project. Temporary traffic signs, reflective barrels and electronic signs will guide motorists through the work zone. MDOT SHA contractor Covington Machine and Welding Inc., of Annapolis, will perform the work.
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.
Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
