11/12/2010SHA to Repair Pavement Along Rock Spring Road (MD 24) in Harford County


Motorists Advised to Plan Ahead for Extra Travel Time, Lane Closures and Flagging Operations in Work Zone

(November 12, 2010) - The Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration (SHA) is beginning a $145,000 project to repair pavement along MD 24 (Rock Spring Road) between Red Pump Road and the US 1 Bypass overpass in Bel Air.

Beginning on or after Monday, November 15, contractor crews will concrete patch areas along MD 24 with lane closures permitted between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday. During road work, there may be lane shifts and lane closures, with flagpersons controlling two-way traffic within the work zone. SHA advises motorists to plan ahead for extra travel time along MD 24 during the next several weeks.

There will be no planned lane closures along this section of MD 24 during the Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend (noon Wednesday, November 24 to 9 a.m. Monday, November 29).

The MD 24 repair project is made possible through Governor Martin O'Malley's aggressive management of the requirements of the landmark American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This project, together with other ARRA projects, is stimulating Maryland's economy by preserving and creating jobs. The State's contractor for the resurfacing project is Gray and Son, Inc. of Timonium, Md. Weather permitting, SHA anticipates completing the repair work by late December.

For more information about highway maintenance activities along MD 24 or other State routes in Harford County, citizens may contact SHA's District Four Office – Maintenance Division at 410-229-2360, toll free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email at

SHA reminds motorists that when workers are on the road, THINK ORANGE, which is the color of construction signs, barrels and warning devices. Please slow down, stay alert and expect the unexpected. Make work zone safety your business at
