Drainage pipe replacement part of two-week, $2.2M Garrett project
From Staff Reports Cumberland Times-News
GRANTSVILLE — U.S. Route 40 Alternate will be closed between U.S. Route 40 at Keysers Ridge and the western limits of Grantsville near Springs Road beginning Monday, the Maryland State Highway Administration announced.
The road will reopen before Aug. 27, the first day of school in Garrett County.
The closure is part of a $2.2 million safety and resurfacing project that will allow crews to replace a drainage pipe that crosses the road about 50 feet east of Spring Valley Farm Lane. The pipe replacement and patching will be completed during the closure, but paving work will continue this fall. If necessary, the final surface of asphalt will be placed next spring.
During the approximately two-week closure, traffic will be detoured onto Interstate 68.
Accommodations will be made for residents within the closure area as well as for bicycles and buggy traffic to continue through the work zone, as they cannot travel on the interstate. Those using this route should proceed with caution and expect possible delays.
Anyone with questions about the project may contact SHA’s District 6 Office at 301-729-8400.
