​Motorists Can Expect Shoulder Closures Near MD 202 (Landover Road) 

(February 10, 2023) –The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a project next week at I-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway) near MD 202 (Landover Road) in Landover to repair weathered corrugated pipe. The project is estimated to take approximately three months to complete, weather permitting.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, February 13, crews will briefly close the right lane on the Outer Loop of  I-95/I-495 near exit 16 prior to installing concrete barriers on the shoulder. Once concrete barriers are installed, the right lane will re-open, and crews will work within the shoulder area until the project is completed.

MDOT SHA contractor Concrete General, of Gaithersburg, will use traffic barrels to guide motorists through the work zone during lane closures. Customers who have questions may contact the MDOT SHA District 3 Office at 301-513-7300 or toll-free at 1-800-749-0737.

MDOT SHA reminds motorists that the side of the road is a dangerous place. Cold winter months can take a toll on vehicle performance and operating systems, causing mechanical breakdown. Prevent breakdowns by ensuring all critical systems are in proper working order. Motorists can dial #77 on their mobile devices for roadside assistance.
