Md. 140 resurfacing to begin next week

Motorists should expect single lane closures next week as the Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration resurfaces more than five miles of Md. 140 (Taneytown Pike) between Royer Road and Mayberry Road. Weather permitting, the $3.6 million project will be complete by late fall.

According to a SHA news release, C.J. Miller LLC will patch, grind (remove the top layer of pavement), resurface and restripe the pavement, and install new guardrails. Drivers should expect single lane closures Sundays through Thursdays from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. Crews might also close one lane Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., with flagging operations and lane shifts.

While SHA and its transportation partners strive to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, SHA officials encourage drivers to actively modify their driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. SHA will use barrels, dynamic message signs and arrow boards to guide motorists through the work zone.

For more information, contact the SHA District 7 Office at 301-624-8100 or send email to shadistrict7@sha.state.md.us.
