Maryland’s State Highway Administration is beginning three road resurfacing projects in the area. Beginning this week, the SHA is working on fixing damaged roads on a 1.5-mile stretch of Reisterstown Road from Seven Mile Lane to Naylors Lane. The SHA says to expect one lane to be closed Sunday through Thursday beginning at 9 p.m. and opening back up at 5 a.m. The $250,000 project will be completed late summer, according to a news release.
Additionally, the SHA recently started the first of two projects on area freeways and highways. The first project is in the Hunt Valley area, on the stretch of I-83 between Dairy Road and York Road, where the SHA will patch, grind, pave and restripe a one-mile section of the freeway.
The second project is on I-795 between Franklin Boulevard and Md. 140 in Owings Mills/Glyndon, a 2.4-mile section. The road crews will be out between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday through Friday. One lane of the highway will be closed while work is being completed. The projects should be completed by fall, weather permitting. The $9.5 million project is part of a contract that includes I-95 between the Baltimore City line and I-695 in the southwest corner. It will begin this fall.
Maryland drivers can check traffic updates, including construction and lane closures, by calling 511 or visiting md511.org.
