​(April 16, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin improving the roadway surface of MD 695A (Broening Highway) near the Dundalk Marine Terminal in Baltimore County tonight, April 16. Starting at 8 p.m., crews will work continuously until 5 a.m. Monday to remove and restore concrete pavement along sections of Broening Highway in the area east of Ralls Avenue and Maryland Avenue. Crews will continue these work hours every weekend until the end of May.    

MDOT SHA’s contractor, P. Flanigan and Sons, Inc. of Baltimore, will perform the work, which will require double lane closures on Broening Highway. Crews will use a flagging operation to direct traffic. All side streets will be open during the work hours. Electronic message boards, signs and barrels will alert motorists and guide them through the work zone.    

The weekend concrete work is part of an ongoing $3 million MDOT SHA project to improve 1.3 miles of pavement on Broening Highway, in coordination with MDOT Maryland Port Administration (MDOT MPA).  The project began fall 2020 and will be complete fall 2021, weather permitting.   

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.
