Construction on Frederick Road between Catonsville and Ellicott City

Motorists can expect to see temporary lane closures on a 2-mile section of Frederick Road from Catonsville to Ellicott City due to repairs and resurfacing that will last until late fall, according to a Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) Monday, Nov. 17 press release.

Construction of the $1 million project is between North Rolling Road in Catonsville and River Road in Ellicott City, SHA said in the release. That includes milling or removing the top layer of pavement, patching and resurfacing pavement, SHA said.

Approximately 15,000 vehicles travel between those two points each day, according to Charlie Gischlar, a spokesman for SHA.

The road was last resurfaced in 1993, Gischlar said. It has been patched since then and is now due for resurfacing, he said.

Crews will be working between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. They will also work between 6 a.m. and noon Saturdays, as needed, SHA said in the release.

The contractors will use flaggers, barrels, cones and signs to direct two-way traffic through the one-lane work area, SHA said.

Drivers are urged to drive safely in the work zone to prevent crashes by staying alert and keeping an eye out for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers, SHA said.

Those with questions may contact SHA's District 4 Office Maintenance Division in Hunt Valley at 410-229-2360,  toll free at 1-866-998-0367 or through email at shadistrict4@sha.state.md.us.
