Pr. George's Road Work Gets Underway

Road work beginning in northern Prince George's County this week will lead to closures which might last until the summer.

Maryland's State Highway Administration will begin working on roads and installing pavement markings as part of a $4.6.million project aimed at improving road safety.

Up to one lane and a shoulder on the roads under repair will be closed from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and overnight Monday through Thursday between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The project includes the following roads: Route 450 (Annapolis Road) between Peace Cross and Bladensburg Elementary School; U.S. 1 (Baltimore Avenue) between 38th Street and Hamilton Street; Route 501 (Chillum Road) between Route 212 (Riggs Road) and Route 500 (Queens Chapel Road); Route 197 (Laurel Bowie Road) between Rustic Hill Drive and Old Laurel Bowie Road; and Route 198 (Sandy Spring Road) between Interstate 95 and Van Dusen Road.

For more information about the closures, call 1-800-749-0737.
