From Harford County government:
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily close and detour both lanes of westbound US 40 (Pulaski Highway) at the MD 715 (Short Lane) interchange in Aberdeen on September 5 and 6, beginning at 11 p.m. each night.
The temporary road closure and detour are part of SHA’s $18 million project to improve the US 40/MD 715 interchange area and widen MD 715 between US 40 and the Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) Maryland Gate. This project, which is being constructed by SHA in conjunction with the Federal Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), includes widening the two-lane bridge carrying MD 715 over US 40 to four lanes. The overnight road closure and detour will allow crews to safely set steel beams for the new sections of the bridge over westbound Pulaski Highway.
SHA will temporarily close westbound US 40 at MD 715 between 11 p.m. Wednesday, September 5 and 5 a.m. Thursday, September 6 and again between 11 p.m. Thursday, September 6 and 5 a.m. Friday, September 7. During the road closures, motorists on US 40 West will be directed to take the ramp from US 40 West to MD 715 North, then the ramp from MD 715 North back to US 40 West. On both nights, one lane along eastbound US 40 will remain open to traffic, and flag persons will direct two-way traffic on MD 715 crossing the bridge over US 40.
In case of inclement weather, the steel beam placement and overnight road closures on US 40 West will take place the next possible weeknight (Sunday – Thursday nights).
Citizens with questions about the US 40/MD 715 interchange project may call Ms. Amy Andrews, the SHA Project Engineer, at the SHA Project Field Office in Aberdeen at 410-306-6295 or the SHA District 4 Construction Section at 410-229-2420, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
