Weather permitting, on Monday, Aug. 17, Maryland State Highway Administration will begin repairing a section of the deteriorated shoulder along southbound US 301 (Crain Highway) south of MD 6 (Port Tobacco Road / Charles Street) in La Plata due to intense Tropical Storm Isaias rainstorms.
Crews will install temporary pavement markings to shift the southbound travel lanes to make room for barrier wall installation. Barrier wall will then be installed between south of the Charles County Sheriff’s Office entrance and Glen Albin Road.
Once complete, drivers will continue to use two southbound travel lanes and should remain alert for the changing traffic pattern. Crews will also close the median crossover at Glen Albin Road, restricting drivers from turning from southbound US 301 onto Glen Albin Road, and restricting turns from eastbound Glen Albin Road onto southbound US 301.
Customers who have questions about this project may contact the MDOT SHA District 5 Office at 410-841-1000 or toll-free at 1-800-331-5603.
