​(June 29, 2020) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will close the eastbound MD 5 (Branch Avenue) ramp to MD 337 (Allentown Road) tonight, as crews complete emergency storm drain and inlet repairs. The ramp will be closed in 15-minute increments from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Variable message boards will be placed to alert motorists of the closure.

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. Drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.
