New Hampshire Avenue Lane Shifts Next Week

If the weather allows, traffic on New Hampshire Avenue (MD 650) will be shifted next Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 9-10, near Bonifant Road/Good Hope Road to allow for construction of the permanent northbound MD 650 Bridge over the future $2.5 billion Intercounty Connector (ICC).

During this two-day transition, crews will shift southbound MD 650 slightly to the right and northbound MD 650 to the left, adjacent to the southbound lanes separated by concrete barrier. SHA will install concrete barrier to provide a temporary hiker/biker path along the eastside of MD 650, which will help maintain pedestrian access through the work zone. Motorists should expect temporary lane closures during the traffic pattern change.

The traffic shift along southbound MD 650 will begin south of Bonifant Road/Good Hope Road and continue to Colesville Manor Drive. On Thursday night, Sept. 10, crews will shift northbound MD 650 beginning north of the Orchard Way intersection and to south of Bonifant Road/Good Hope Road. SHA will use signs, cones, barrels, variable warning signs and temporary flagging operations to guide motorists through the work zone.

SHA will maintain two lanes in each direction during peak travel times, as well as pedestrian access along relocated sidewalks. All lanes of MD 650 will be open by 5 a.m. each morning during the traffic shifts. The ICC/MD 650 interchange completion is slated for mid-2011.

Could you please start placing an extra carriage return between paragraphs? It makes postings a lot easier to read. Notice how the blog entries by your colleagues (both in this blog and in others such as Capitals Insider or the DC Sports Bog) contain white space between the paragraphs.

I don't see the problem with the spacing on this blog; it looks the same as the Capital Insider. The both have an blank line between paragraphs. I'm using Firefox 3.5.2
