Road and lane closures for Tuesday, Jan. 3

January 03, 2012

Here is the list of road and lane closures in the area for Tuesday, Jan. 3:

* As of 7:10 a.m., there are two accidents on I-70 eastbound, at Exit 12 to Big Pool Road and two miles east of there, a supervisor for Washington County Emergency Services said. The interstate is shut down in the area. There is also an accident on I-70 just four miles west of Exit 42 to Myersville. On I-81 northbound there is an accident at Exit 10 to Showalter Road, a supervisor for Washington County Emergency Services said. There are also two accidents on I-81 at Exit 9 to Maugans Avenue.

* Traffic is moving smoothly on I-270 southbound between Frederick and I-495 and on I-70 between Frederick and Baltimore but is sluggish between the two accidents and Frederick on the eastbound side. Traffic on I-495 is moving slowly between I-95 and I-270 in both directions.

* Despite the accidents on I-70 and I-81, no roads or lanes are closed specifically due to the snow that has fallen on the area, Diane Mongan of the Washington County Highway Department said.

* Alley 2-94 between West Baltimore and West Lee streets is scheduled to close at 7 a.m. today so a gas main can be replaced, according to a traffic advisory from the City of Hagerstown's website. Closure is expected to remain in effect until 5 p.m. Friday.

* Work to expand the intersection of Massey Boulevard and Halfway Boulevard near Hagerstown is mostly complete, but minor work still needs to be done in the area.

* Only one lane of Md. 550 in Thurmont, Md., is open between Eylers Valley Flint Road and Kelbaugh Road due to a mudslide that occurred last April. However, it could reopen by June.
