Traffic to be Detoured on
Northbound I-270 at MD 109 for Four Hours
SHA Will Detour Traffic for Four Hours
between Midnight and 4:00 a.m. Early Tuesday Morning
(April 2, 2009) - On early Tuesday morning, April 7, the Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily detour traffic along northbound I-270 at Exit 22/MD 109 (Old Hundred Road) in Montgomery County for approximately four hours between midnight and 4:00 a.m., weather permitting.
As part of the $8 million project to replace the 58 year-old bridges along I-270 over Doctor Perry Road in Frederick County, on April 7, from midnight to 4:00 a.m., SHA will temporarily detour traffic along northbound I-270. SHA will detour traffic for approximately four hours to ensure the safety of work crews and motorists as a storm water management pipe is installed beneath northbound I-270.
Motorists traveling along northbound I-270 will be detoured to Exit 22 (MD 109 east) to a left at MD 355 (Urbana Pike) north to a left onto MD 80 (Fingerboard Road) west back to I-270. SHA will place signs along the detour route to guide motorists. Additionally, Maryland State Police (MSP) will be on-site at the I-270/MD 109 and MD 109/MD 355 intersections to assist with traffic control.
SHA awarded the contract to F. O. Day, Inc. of Rockville. Citizens who have questions about traffic operations along I-270, or other State numbered routes in Frederick County, may call SHAâ€™s District 7 Office at 301-624-8100 or toll free at 1-800-635-5119. SHA reminds all drivers to buckle up, obey posted speed limits, think orange, and stay alert in the work zone. Motorists can learn more by logging onto www.choosesafetyforlife.com.
During the next several months, there could be more than 350 work zones. Remember that work zones are not only large construction projects possibly taking years to complete, but smaller, mobile operations such as mowing, pothole repair and litter pick ups.
