Overnight Asphalt Work to Begin Sunday Night

News Release, Maryland Department of Transportation, State Highway Administration

UPDATE: April 10, 2020 – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin placing asphalt on MD 2/4 (Solomons Island Road) as part of the overall improvement project in Prince Frederick.

The overnight work will begin Sunday night, April 12, on both the northbound and southbound lanes.  Single and double lane closures can be expected between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, weather permitting.

There will be at least one lane of travel open during overnight construction. The improvement project is expected to be completed spring of 2020.


The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration shifted traffic along MD 765 (Main Street) in Prince Frederick Thursday night and will be working during daytime and nighttime hours with intermittent flagging operations in effect.                                         

MDOT SHA is preparing the final traffic pattern that will connect Main Street to Commerce Lane, and provide a right turn movement to reach the Central Square Shopping Center. The lane shift will be in place until mid-April.

MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on the road and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes, and highway workers.
