LEONARDTOWN, MD – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will shift traffic along MD 5 as part of the Abell and Moakley Streets intersection improvements Monday night, Nov. 23, starting at 9 p.m.
MDOT SHA’s contractor will stripe and shift the travel lanes within the work zone overnight. This temporary traffic pattern will allow crews to work on the curb and gutter and ADA-compliant sidewalk. Once in place, drivers will continue to use two travel lanes in each direction; daytime single-lane closures are still permitted Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Portable variable message signs will advise drivers of the upcoming changing traffic pattern. MDOT SHA works to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews and our customers. Drivers are reminded to stay alert, focus on driving, and look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. For a list of all major MDOT SHA projects, go to roads.maryland.gov.
