The State Highway Administration on Monday will begin a $1.1 million project to improve the intersection of U.S. 40 at Md. 63, which is Huyetts Crossroads, Spokesman David Buck said Wednesday.

The project includes adding right turn lanes in both directions, resurfacing the road, drainage improvements and new traffic signals.

Buck said the project is slated to last 120 days and should be completed by the end of the year.

Shoulder and lane closings may occur along U.S. 40 and Md. 63 (Spielman Road) on Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.

The State Highway Administration on Tuesday began an $840,000 project to resurface a 4.8-mile section of Md. 66 (Mapleville Road) between Fish Hatchery Road and Md. 64 (Jefferson Boulevard/Smithsburg Pike), Buck said.

That project will last 80 days and should be completed in July or August. The project includes the installation of new guardrails and drainage improvements.
