CLEAR SPRING — One lane of traffic is closed Thursday on sections of Clear Spring Road (Md. 68) between National Pike (U.S. 40) in Clear Spring to Big Pool Road (Md. 56) in Pinesburg.

Slurry pavement is being put on the road in that area, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration's website.

All the markings were being removed from the road Thursday morning, said Brian Devilbiss of Slurry Paving Inc. After that, workers will begin laying down the slurry pavement.

Slurry pavement is a thin-layered pavement that can be put on top of asphalt. It has been applied recently on various roads in the area, including Pennsylvania Avenue (U.S. 11) from Hagerstown to the Pennsylvania state line.

The work Clear Spring Road is expected until 5 p.m. Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration's website.
