Road work -- The State Highway Administration is working to relieve congestion and improve safety along Route 32 at Burntwoods Road by constructing a $30 million interchange that will require lane closings. The new interchange will remove two traffic signals at Burntwoods and Ten Oaks roads, and relocate several private driveways and local roads that intersect Route 32. The Route 32-Burntwoods Road intersection will be relocated, and a roundabout, ramps, a bridge and a new access point will be added. Single-lane closings are planned along Route 32 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday. Single lanes also might be closed along Ten Oaks Road, Pfefferkorn Road and Burntwoods Road from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Traffic drums, signs and cones will guide motorists through work zones. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2009. 301-624-8100.
