Using some its last available economic stimulus money, the State Highway Administration is starting a $977,000 project today to resurface Monkton Road in northern Baltimore County.
The SHA will mill off the top layer of 3 1/2 miles on the road (Route 138) between York Road and the Gunpowder Falls Bridge. The work will involve lane closures at any time between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays and between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
The agency urges motorists to allow for extra travel time if using that road between Hereford and Monkton, including the access point to the Torrey C. Brown NCR Rail Trail. The project is expected to continue until mid-May.
