(May 10, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is installing new steel traffic barrier (guardrail) at the intersection of MD 695A (Broening Highway) at Belclare Road in Dundalk. Crews began working last week and will continue to work 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Friday, May 14. Temporary intersection detours in effect.   

MDOT SHA’s contractor, P. Flanigan and Sons, Inc. of Baltimore, is performing the work. Crews are using temporary digital message boards, traffic signs,  barrels and cones to direct traffic to and from Broening Highway and Belclare Road using a detour route via Dundalk Avenue and Dunhill Road.   

All other side-street access along Broening Highway will be open during the daily work hours. In case of inclement weather, the daytime intersection work and detour will take place the next possible day.     

The traffic barrier upgrade is part of an ongoing $3 million MDOT SHA project to improve 1.3 miles of 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.
