Overnight road repairs starting in early May for Calvert County

News Release, MDOT SHA

Motorists Should Expect Single Lane Closures Overnights in May

(April 18, 2019) – Starting early May, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin improving ride quality and paving in both directions of MD 2/MD 4 (Solomons Island Road) between Coster Mill Bridge Road and Calvert Cliff Parkway and between MD 264 (Broomes Island Road) and MD 231 (Hallowing Point Road) in Calvert County. The work will continue each night until early-summer.

Motorists can expect overnight single lane closures between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday nights through Friday mornings. Motorists are encouraged to allow extra commuting time during construction.

MDOT SHA’s contractor, Aggregate Industries, of Greenbelt, will mill, patch, crack seal and place an ultra-thin bonded wearing course to the roadway to improve ride quality for thousands of daily motorists. 

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our contractor. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on the road and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Drive like you work here and slowdown in construction zones.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
