The Maryland State Highway Administration announced it is resurfacing a section of Route 1 in Harford County.
Work began last week and is expected to be finished by late fall, weather permitting.
The project covers a one mile section of Route 1 between Business Route 1 and Gibson Road and includes milling — which is the removal of the top layer of pavement — as well as patching and resurfacing. SHA's contractor for the $707,000 project is American Infrastructure of Fallston.
Crews are permitted to work between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays, if necessary. Motorists may encounter temporary lane closures and the contractor will use flaggers, barrels, cones and signs to direct two-way traffic through the one-lane work areas.
Anyone who has questions about highway maintenance on Route 1 or any other state highway in Harford County may contact the SHA's District 4 Office – Maintenance Division in Hunt Valley at 410-229-2360, toll-free at 1-866-998-0367 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Officials warned that while SHA and its partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, drivers need to actively modify their driving to help prevent crashes. SHA officials remind drivers to stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.
