The construction schedule on Interstate 95 between Route 32 and Route 216 in Howard County will be altered between Aug. 27 and Aug. 29 resulting in earlier double-lane closures, according to a State Highway Administration spokesperson.
The $2 million repaving project began Aug. 15 and is expected to last a month, according to SHA.
Originally, single-lane closures were expected at 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with double-lane closures possible after 9 p.m. on all nights, according to a SHA news release.
SHA has announced double-lane closures will be permitted to begin at 8 p.m. through Aug. 29. Work hours were also extended into the morning from 5 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. on those days.
According to SHA, crews have removed one inch of pavement and are working to place the first layer of asphalt prior to Labor Day weekend.
SHA encourages motorists to consider Route 1, Route 29 or Route 295 as possible alternate routes.
