Lanes Closing on I-70 in Frederick County

There will be lane closures this Fall in connection with a $3.4 million project to improve about seven miles of westbound I-70 between west of I-270 and Hollow Road, west of the City of Frederick.

In addition to resurfacing, state highway crews will widen the shoulders at four emergency vehicle crossovers along I-70 between I-270 and Hollow Road.

There will be no closures over Labor Day weekend. In the weeks after then, crews will close a single lane of westbound I-70 Sunday 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and Monday through Thursday 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Additionally, nighttime double-lane closures are possible along the three lane section climbing Braddock Mountain. More than 72,000 vehicles travel along this section of I-70 each day so motorists should expect delays.
