Motorists Should Expect Overnight Single Lane Closures as Crews Pave MD 2/4 NB from the Thomas Johnson Bridge to Coster Mill Bridge Road

News Release, Maryland State Highway Administration

Solomons, MD- (April 2, 2019) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is resurfacing nearly 3 miles of northbound MD 2/4 (Solomons Island Road) between the Thomas Johnson Bridge and Coster Mill Bridge Road in southern Calvert County. The project is underway and will be complete by the end of the month.

Motorists can expect cones, barrels and single lane closures Sunday nights through Friday mornings between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

MDOT SHA’s contractor, Aggregate Industries, of Greenbelt, will patch, grind, pave and restripe the roadway to improve ride quality. Approximately 27,000 vehicles use this section of MD 2/4 each day, but the traffic volume drops significantly overnight.


While MDOT SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.
