STATE HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION TO RESURFACE US 220 FROM MD 636 TO BUNTING STREET IN ALLEGANY COUNTY
Project Includes Resurfacing and Safety Improvements near Bowling Green;Daytime and Nighttime Single Lane and Shoulder Closures May Occur
(August 17, 2007) – Beginning next week, as part of the overall effort to keep Maryland’s highways safe and in good condition, the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will resurface nearly two miles along US 220 (McMullen Highway) between MD 636 (Warrior Drive) and Bunting Street in Allegany County. The $874,000 project should be completed by late fall, weather permitting.
The project includes patching, grinding, resurfacing, traffic barrier upgrades and new reflective pavement markings. Approximately 16,000 vehicles travel along US 220 near Bowling Green each day, so delays can be expected.
Motorists traveling along US 220 may encounter single closures, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and at night 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Shoulder closures may also take place at any time. Advanced warning signs, flag persons, traffic drums and cones will guide motorists through the work zones.
SHA awarded the project to Belt Paving of Cumberland. Citizens who have questions about traffic operations along I-68 or any other State numbered routes within Allegany County, may call SHA’s District 6 Office at 301-729-8400 or toll-free at 1-800-760-7138.
