The left eastbound lane of Dual Highway is closed from Mount Aetna Road to the McDonald's past Edgewood Drive. This comes after the right eastbound lane of Dual Highway was closed last Thursday and Friday from Mount Aetna Road to Edgewood Drive.
On Friday, a spokesman for the Maryland State Highway Administration said that the lanes would be closed for milling and resurfacing.
The spokesman said two inches are being added to the base of the pavement.
According to the spokesman, the lanes would reopen at 3 p.m. each day. He said that after they finished with the right lane, they would move to the left lane. Today the right lane has been open all day.
The work is part of a long-term project to expand the Dual Highway-Edgewood Drive intersection and provide curb lanes and sidewalks for bicycles and pedestrians. The Maryland State Highway Administration’s website says the project will cost approximately $5 million. Funding for it began in 2009.
Pessoa Construction has been contracted to work on the project.
