Night work on U.S. 1 in Md.

The Maryland State Highway Administration plans to conduct nighttime work for two weeks along Baltimore Avenue (U.S.1) between East-West Highway (Route 410) and Albion Road in University Park.

Single-lane closures will occur Friday and Saturday this weekend and Oct. 22-23 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., officials said. The work is part of the resurfacing projecting occurring along U.S. 1. The closures are necessary to allow works to complete patching and grinding of the road surface before cold temperatures settle in.

The $811,000 project is expected to last the rest of 2010. Crews are removing the top layer of asphalt and resurfacing the roadway; cleaning and repairing storm drains; replacing curbs and gutters; replacing sidewalks and upgrading ramps; and installing new pavement markings.
