A two-mile portion of Route 450 near Crofton will be closed for about two weeks, starting as early as Saturday, to perform drainage work that will reduce the threat of flooding, state highway officials said.
Crews will replace metal pipes with concrete pipes along Route 450, between Route 424 and Huntwood Drive. The work is part of a $2.2 million drainage project that started in October and is expected to be completed in January.
Local and residential traffic will have access through the area, state officials said. Other drivers are asked to use U.S. 50 as a detour.
