Pedestrian safety is being enhanced along US 1 in College Park through a series of safety improvements and a public education campaign.
"Our emergency patrols assist stranded motorists and get them out of harm’s way,” said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters. “The 24-7 expansion allows us to quickly respond to after-hours and weekend incidents as well as change flat tires and jump-start vehicles. The patrols are a wonderful customer service and more importantly, a critical safety program.”
SHA crews are patrolling State roads in Maryland's 23 counties and repairing potholes weekdays during non-peak travel times. In order to safely repair pavements, crews need to briefly close travel lanes. Motorists should slow down and be extremely cautious near mobile work zones for their safety and that of road crews. (Note: to report potholes in the City of Baltimore please contact the city at 311.)
