​(September 20, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will clear the waterway under the MD 77 (Rocky Road Bridge) over Double Pipe Creek in Carroll County tomorrow. Crews will clear logs and debris blocking part of the creek near the Frederick County line. 

Starting at 8 a.m., Tuesday, September 21, crews will close MD 77 between Detour Road and Keysville Road South to remove the debris gathered after recent severe weather. Motorists will be directed to use Detour Road to MD 194 to get around the work zone. The work is expected to be complete by 4 p.m. the same day, weather permitting. 

MDOT SHA’s Westminster Shop will use electronic signs, cones and barrels to alert motorists about the work zone, road closure and detour. 

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, look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones. Motorists can dial #77 on their mobile devices for roadside assistance. 

Editor’s note:  From intersection improvements to widening and new interchange construction, MDOT SHA is investing in projects to enhance the commute and daily travel for millions of Marylanders.  MDOT SHA maintains more than 2,500 bridges and 17,000 miles of non-toll state roads – the interstate, US and state numbered routes in Maryland’s 23 counties.
