New Maryland highway construction to close lanes

Here's the latest sign of the emerging Intercounty Connector: Starting in the very early hours of Monday morning, all lanes of Route 29 between Fairland Road and Briggs Chaney Road will be subject to short but complete shutdown. These 15-minute closings can occur Mondays through Fridays between midnight and 5 a.m.

To prepare for the night's work, crews may close one lane between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and two lanes between 7 p.m. and midnight. The overnight closings will occur periodically through spring so that workers can set steel for the Intercounty Connector Bridge over Route 29.

Consider Old Columbia Pike, to the west of Route 29, or I-95, to the east as alternatives during the shutdowns. On Route 29, look for the portable message boards to warn about these closings.
