MD 103 sign)(March 12, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a project Monday morning, March 15, that will improve the road surface of MD 103 (Meadowridge Road) in Howard County. Crews will mill and patch two miles of roadway between US 1 (Washington Boulevard) and MD 100. The work will take place weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is expected to be complete by May. MDOT SHA’s contractor, Gray and Son, Inc., will use a flagging operation, cones and signs to alert motorists and guide them through the work zone. During the project, crews will install an underdrain at Kane Way. The underdrain will improve drainage and safety by collecting and transporting water away from the road surface. 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.
