​Motorists to be Directed to Use US 50 in Downtown Ocean City

(March 17, 2022) - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will perform nighttime maintenance work on the nearly 12-mile section of MD 90 (Ocean City Expressway) over five nights between Sunday, March 27 and the morning of Friday, April 1, weather permitting.   

Crews will work nightly between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. During the work periods, motorists will be directed to continue to US 50 to downtown Ocean City to Coastal Highway. Drivers should add approximately 30 minutes to their commute during the maintenance work.    

The work includes:   

  • guardrail repair,   
  • drainage inlet cleaning for improved highway drainage,   
  • debris removal,   
  • highway lighting repairs, and    
  • line striping.

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. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.

Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance.
