News Release, St. Mary’s County Public Information Office

LEONARDTOWN, MD – Last week’s tropical storm damaged multiple St. Mary’s County roadways, causing closures and necessitating detours. The Department of Public Works and Transportation, in collaboration with various contractors, is working to safely and efficiently perform repairs. The following is a list of closures with tentative reopening timelines:

Doctor Johnson Road between Buggy Trail Way and Mt. Sterling Court is closed. Repair work is underway, and completion is expected the week of Aug. 24.

Friendship School Road between Bennington Lane and Rolling Hills Lane is closed. Repair work is underway, and completion is expected by Aug. 14.

Due to extensive erosion and damage, Busy Corner Road at Colton Point Road, and Manor Road between Lori Lane and Hurry Road, are closed. Work is underway; completion is not expected for several months. Citizens should plan to follow the detours at this time.
