From the Maryland State Highway Administration:
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is beginning a new $1.7 million project to improve one-half mile of the service road parallel to westbound US 40 (Pulaski Highway / South Philadelphia Boulevard) between MD 132 (West Bel Air Avenue) and Robinson Avenue in Aberdeen. Weather permitting, construction work will begin Monday, July 29 and continue through summer 2014.
The project includes: pavement patching, repairs and resurfacing; construction of new sidewalks and ramps; construction of a median between the service road and westbound US 40; water line relocation work; drainage improvement; and installation of new pavement markings and traffic signs. The State’s contractor for the project is Daisy Concrete, Inc.
During construction work, there may be lane closures and lane shifts along the service road and the highway. SHA will maintain access to businesses during construction.
Drivers should allow extra travel time and look ahead for flag persons, construction crews and equipment while traveling to and from business driveways on the service road. Crews may work during the day Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and at night Sunday through Thursday between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day. If necessary, crews may work during the day on weekends.
SHA and Daisy Concrete appreciate your patience during the construction period. Citizens with questions about the US 40 service road project may contact SHA’s District Four Office – Construction Division at 410-229-2420, toll free at 1-866-998-0367 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
