3/7/2011MD 140 at Sandymount Road Intersection Improvement Project
To improve safety at the intersection of MD 140 (Baltimore Boulevard) and Sandymount Road,  the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will lengthen the existing left-turn lanes on MD 140 in both directions to provide additional capacity for left turning vehicles.  The additional capacity will prevent left turning vehicles from backing onto mainline MD 140.  SHA will extend the eastbound left turn lane approximately 600 feet and the westbound lane approximately 1000 feet.
SHA will also improve stormwater management at the intersection.  SHA anticipates completing work in spring 2011, weather permitting. 
 
During construction SHA will temporarily close the crossover.  The closure will provide ample room for equipment access.  The crossover will be closed for approximately six weeks and is expected to reopen prior to the start of school. 
 
Motorists on westbound MD 140 planning to access Sandymount Road will be directed to the next intersection at Bethel Road to turn onto eastbound MD 140 and proceed back to Sandymount Road.  Motorists on eastbound MD 140 planning to access Sandymount Road will be directed to the next intersection at Suffolk Road/Green Mill Road to turn onto westbound MD 140 and proceed back to Sandymount Road. 
 
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.  Choose to make work zone safety your business at www.choosesafetyforlife.com.
