From a news release:
Work to resurface a portion of MD 10 (Arundel Expressway) near Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway) in northeastern Anne Arundel County -- a busy commuter route to Baltimore that carries about 50,000 vehicles a day -- is under way.
According to a news release from the Maryland State Highway Administration, resurfacing of the northbound lanes of MD 10 between MD 710 (Ordnance Road) and I-695 is expected to take about two weeks, weather permitting. Crews will grind off existing roadway, patch it and resurface the highway to improve traction and install retro-reflective pavement markings to improve visibility.
Drivers should expect weekday single-lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This work is being performed under a $7 million multi-location “areawide” contract awarded to Reliable Contracting of Millersville.
Later this month, crews will replace guardrails along MD 10 from MD 177 (Mountain Road) to I-695, a total of nearly five miles. Work includes installation of new shoulder and median guardrail to meet current federal standards, along with landscaping and tree planting.
Work will be done between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, with the project scheduled for fall by fall. The state awarded a $1 million contract for this work to L.S. Lee of York, PA.
MD 10 is a controlled-access expressway that parallels the busy MD 2 commercial corridor and provides a key commuter link between Pasadena and Baltimore. Nearly 50,000 vehicles travel MD 10 each day.
Highway officials say drivers can help prevent crashes if they:
- Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.
- Slow down and don't follow too closely.
