The Maryland State Highway Administration advises motorists in Washington County to expect overnight lane closures starting Monday as SHA resurfaces eastbound I-70 between U.S. 40 (Dual Highway/National Pike) and Md. 66 (Mapleville Road) east of Hagerstown. Weather permitting, the project will be complete by June 30, the SHA said in a news release.

The $1.2 million project includes milling, resurfacing and restriping the 2 1/2-mile section of highway, which serves an average of about 30,000 eastbound vehicles per day.

The SHA said motorists should anticipate single-lane closures Monday through Thursday nights between 7 p.m. and 4 a.m. as well as possible single-lane closures Sunday mornings between midnight and 11 a.m.

SHA will use signs, cones and barrels to guide motorists through the work zone.

SHA’s contractor for the project is P&W Excavating Inc. of McConnellsburg, Pa.

Anyone with questions about traffic operations on I-70 or other State numbered routes in Washington County may contact SHA’s District 6 office at 301-729-8400 or toll-free at 800-760-7138, or by email at SHADistrict6@sha.state.md.us.
