​(April 28, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is performing emergency repairs on the bridge joint on the westbound I-70 bridge over Harmony Road​ near Myersville, Frederick County.  

The emergency work requires a right lane closure on westbound I-70. The work and lane closure are expected to last through the evening commute. Motorists are advised to take US 40 (Baltimore National Pike) as an alternate route to avoid delays. More than 60,000 vehicles use this section of I-70 daily.​

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.    

Governor Larry Hogan has declared April as Work Zone Safety Month in Maryland. Click here for more information on Work Zone Safety. Also follow MDOT SHA on Twitter @MDSHA and on Facebook at facebook.com/MDOTSHA.  ​
