The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is resurfacing two miles of southbound MD 295 (Baltimore Washington Parkway) between Winterson Road and Hanover Road in Anne Arundel County. This $2 million resurfacing project will be complete late-summer, weather permitting.
“The pavement on this section of MD 295 needs to be resurfaced to improve the ride quality for the thousands of motorists who travel it each day,” said SHA Acting District 5 Engineer Corren Johnson. “Crews will work at night to reduce construction-related congestion and MDOT SHA recommends that motorists consider using I-95 or US 1 as alternate routes. We ask that motorists slow down and stay alert through the work zone.”
SHA’s contractor, P. Flanigan & Sons, Inc. of Baltimore, will patch, grind (remove the top layer of asphalt), resurface and restripe 2.1 miles of southbound MD 295. Other work on the project includes:
- Upgrading and replacing guardrail;
- Repairing, cleaning and upgrading existing storm water management inlets and pipes; and
- Road way slope repair and sediment control.
Crews will work Sundays through Thursdays between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Motorists should expect a single lane closures through the work zone. Last resurfaced in 1997, this section of MD 295 has an average traffic volume of 101,300 vehicles daily and is a primary route to BWI Thurgood Marshall International Airport.
The e-Road Ready 2017 electronic construction brochure is now available by clicking here. The e-brochure highlights major road construction and maintenance projects in each of MDOT SHA’s seven engineering districts which cover Maryland’s 23 counties. Maryland drivers can also know before they go by calling 511 or visiting www.md511.org for live traffic updates, including construction delays and lane closures.
While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.
MDOT SHA has a record amount of highway construction projects underway across the state to reduce congestion and improve safety. From intersection improvements to widening and new interchange construction, MDOT SHA is investing in projects to enhance the commute and daily travel for millions of Marylanders. MDOT SHA maintains 17,000 miles of non-toll state roads – the interstate, US and state numbered routes in Maryland’s 23 counties.
