From the State Highway Administration:
(May 18, 2010) – Next week, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will begin a project to patch and repair MD 165 (Pylesville Road) between MD 543 (Ady Road) and the Pennsylvania State Line. The $200,000 project will be completed by mid-June, weather permitting.
SHA will patch old and rough sections of roadway in both directions along MD 165. Motorists should expect single lane closures guided by a flagging operation between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Approximately 7,700 vehicles use MD 165 near the Mason/Dixon Line each day. Motorists should plan on extra travel time traveling through Pylesville.
This project is made possible through Governor Martin O’Malley’s aggressive management of the requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, bringing critically needed transportation investments to Maryland. Projects such as these are stimulating Maryland’s economy by supporting hundreds of jobs. Follow the delivery of these projects at www.recovery.maryland.gov, which tracks every category of ARRA spending and provides contract-level details to the public in an effort to achieve new levels of government transparency and efficiency.
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. Choose Safety for Life and make work zone safety your business at www.choosesafetyforlife.com
