Update: MD 210 Resurfacing

Update from SHA:
"They are milling and paving MD 210 from Charles County line to the North of Palmer Road. There is a piece in the middle of this section of MD 210 that has already been milled and paved.  Right now there is one crew working from Charles County to Livingston Road.  Last night [March 24-35] they completed milling and paving from Charles County line to Livingston Road and now they will be working on the southbound stretch of the this portion of roadway.  Next week there will be two crews paving NB and milling SB on the remaining portions.  Paving will be daytime and milling will be nighttime.  With significant reduced traffic, crews are working 24/7.  The only restriction we are placing on them is that there cannot be any double lane closures during the day.  We anticipate they will have this work complete within the next two months, however with things changing every day it could possibly be complete sooner."

Original post (March 13):
Beginning Monday night, March 16 at 8 p.m. (weather permitting), crews from the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin an area-wide resurfacing project on MD 210 (Indian Head Highway) from Palmer Road to Shiloh Church Road, a distance of 11 miles. The work is being done to improve the driving surface on MD 210. All work should be complete by late fall.
To complete all work, crews are permitted to close lanes on MD 210, Sunday through Thursday:
  • Northbound—11 a.m. to 4 a.m. the next day [to avoid the morning rush hours]
  • Southbound—8 p.m. to 1 p.m. the next day [to avoid the evening rush hours]
Additional lane closures and work times may be necessary to complete all phases of work. Equipment used for construction may be disruptive. MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our contractor. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on the road and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. For a list of all major MDOT SHA projects, go to www.roads.maryland.gov.
