I-270 work postponed
3:50 p.m. Update: According to an ICC project spokesman, this work has been postponed. All of the needed materials did not arrive on schedule. No new date has been set for the work, he said.
Original post: The Maryland State Highway Administration says all southbound lanes of Interstate 270 will be closed for brief periods early Tuesday morning in the Gaithersburg area so that crews can install an overhead sign structure.
The SHA said that all four lanes south of Exit 10 will be shut down for two, 15-minute intervals between midnight and 4 a.m.
The agency is urging motorists to use alternate routes such as state Route 355 during that time.
The SHA says the work is part of the Intercounty Connector, a six-lane toll road that will run between Montgomery and Prince George's counties. The first part of the ICC is scheduled to open later this year or in early 2011.
