MD 77 (MIDDLEBURG ROAD) GETTING RESURFACED AFTER 30 YEARS IN CARROLL COUNTY

Motorists Can Expect Daily Single Lane Closures Through Mid-November

(October 16, 2017) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is resurfacing MD 77 (Middleburg Road) between MD 194 (Francis Key Highway) and the Frederick County line in Keymar. The $1 million project will be complete mid-November.

Crews will patch, grind, pave and restripe the nearly two-mile section of MD 77. The average traffic volume is about 1,000 vehicles daily. Vehicles will be guided through the work zone by flagging operations. MDOT SHA’s contractor, CJ Miller, LLC. of Hampstead, is permitted to work Mondays through Fridays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver will need to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.  Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Work Zone Safety is in Your Hands.
