(August 17, 2020)– The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will temporarily close the Forest Drive/Columbian Way crossover in Bowie on Tuesday, August 18. Motorists will be directed to use the northern crossover at Sylvan Drive.  The Forest Drive/Columbian Way crossover will reopen fall 2020. This work is part of the MD 3 at Forest Drive Geometric Improvement Project.  

This closure is needed so crews can complete roadway work at Forest Drive and stormwater management activities along MD 3 (Crain Highway) southbound near the Forest Drive intersection. 

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 driving and, look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Drive like you work here and slowdown in construction zones.
