Motorists Advised to Plan Ahead for Extra Travel Time, Flagging Operations in Work Zone
(March 13, 2012) - The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) is beginning a $1 million project to repair damaged pavement along MD 7 (Philadelphia Road) in eastern Harford County.  Work began Monday, March 12. 
Contractor crews will patch, mill and resurface MD 7 between the Baltimore/Harford County Line and MD 152 (Mountain Road).  Lane closures and flagging operations may occur along sections of MD 7 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday. 
During lane closures, sections of the two-lane roadway will be reduced to one lane, with flagpersons controlling two-way traffic within the work zone.  SHA advises motorists to plan ahead for extra travel time along MD 7 and look ahead for flagging operations in the work zone.
SHA’s contractor is Gray and Son, Inc. of Timonium.  Weather permitting, SHA anticipates completing the resurfacing by late spring.
