​Motorists Should Expect Traffic Delays During Work Hours 

(March 27, 2024) The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will begin two resurfacing projects in Somerset County beginning on Tuesday April 2. Both resurfacing projects should be complete by mid-May, weather permitting.

Crews will begin resurfacing a three-quarter mile section of MD 675 (Somerset Avenue) from north of MD 822 (UMES Blvd) to US 13 (Ocean Highway) on April 2. 

Crews will then resurface two miles of MD 675 (Somerset Avenue) from US 13 (Ocean Highway) south to MD 362 (Mt. Vernon Road)​.

The work includes milling (removing the top layer of asphalt), paving and restriping. Crews will work Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Motorists can expect single-lane closures guided by a flagging operation.

The State Highway Administration’s contractor, Allan Myers, Inc. of Dover Delaware, will use arrow boards, cones, and flaggers to safely guide motorists through the work zone. Drivers should expect major traffic impacts with significant delays during work hours.

The State Highway Administration understands that roadwork will inconvenience travelers and asks all motorists to please stay alert and be patient as you pass through the work zone. Hot asphalt may require up to two hours to cool before drivers and pedestrians can safely cross the new road surface. Motorcyclists are urged to be aware of uneven pavement surfaces during the project.
