Roundabout work to close road for day

Construction of the roundabout at Brighton Dam and Ten Oaks roads in Clarksville will result in a one-day road closure of Brighton Dam Road just west of Ten Oaks Road on or about April 5. If weather conditions prohibit construction, the work will be rescheduled for April 12.

The closure will allow the Brighton Dam Road connection to the roundabout to be completed.

Message boards and signs will be posted to advise motorists of the temporary detour route along Ten Oaks Road, Triadelphia Mill Road and Highland Road. Upon completion of the connection - expected in late spring - the roundabout will be open to traffic.

A seminar for livestock owners, or those interested in getting started, will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Circle D Farm in Woodbine.

The cost is $3 in advance; $5 at the door.

The seminar is sponsored by the Howard Soil Conservation District, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service and Maryland Cooperative Extension.
