Construction to begin at Route 175 junctions
Contractors will begin work Monday on improvements to Route 175's intersections with Route 108 and with Snowden River Parkway.
The $2.6 million project will add left-turn lanes for motorists turning from Route 175 onto Route 108 and vice versa, and for motorists turning from Route 175 onto Snowden River Parkway.
Improvements planned by contractors Ratrie, Robbins & Schweizer of Baltimore also will include paving an additional eastbound and a westbound lane on what is now the median strip of Route 175 between Interstate 95 and Snowden River Parkway.
The project also includes a new traffic signal at the Route 108 intersection and improvements to signs, pavement markings and drainage.
Engineers expect the work to be completed by spring.
