* Traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue (U.S. 11) is reduced to one lane between Maugans Avenue and Northern Avenue so the Maryland State Highway Administration can remove the top layer of pavement and resurface it in that area, according to an emailed release from the SHA. Work is expected to continue through Friday, Nov. 9.
