​(September 25, 2020) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) has closed the right lane of eastbound I-70 over Mt. Tabor Road before the exit for MD 17/Myersville for emergency work to the bridge. Crews expect to complete the emergency work tonight. There is also a flagging operation on Mt. Tabor Road underneath the I-70 overpass.

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.
