The State Highway Administration has started a highway maintenance project to improve the ride for more than 9,000 motorists who travel on Route 1 between Poole Road and Smith Road daily in northeastern Harford County.
Crews will mill, patch and resurface the pavement, and the improvements will be completed early summer, weather permitting, the SHA said in news release on the project.
Drivers should expect single lane closures along Route 1 in the Darlington area between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and, if needed, between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday.
Flaggers will guide traffic through the highway work zone, which is marked with temporary signs, cones and barrels. Motorists should also use caution while entering and exiting intersections and driveways.
Gray & Son Inc. of Timonium is completing the work under a $1 million contract, SHA said.
The spring and summer construction season is getting into high gear. For a statewide listing of most SHA projects, visit http://roads.maryland.gov/OC/Road_Ready_2015%20(2).pdf for e-Road Ready 2015.
