MDOT SHA Logo)Overnight Work Includes Resurfacing Five Miles of Roadway in Columbia (September 2, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin improving the roadway surface of MD 108 (Clarksville Pike) in Columbia, Howard County, starting Tuesday, September 7. Crews will patch potholes and resurface both directions of MD 108 between Linden Linthicum Lane and the Little Patuxent River bridge (east of Davidge Drive). The $2.2 million project is expected to complete this fall. Crews will work overnight Sundays through Thursdays from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning. There may also be daytime work on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. This five-mile project includes operations and vehicles that may be noisy. MDOT SHA will make every effort to limit the disruptions during the overnight work hours. Contractor Allan Myers Inc. will use electronic signs, cones and barrels to alert motorists about the work zone and flagging operation. There will also be a truck mounted attenuator (TMA) within the work zone to protect crews and motorists. MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews, as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving and look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones. Motorists can dial #77 or 911 on their mobile device for roadside assistance. For a list of all major MDOT SHA projects, go to Project Portal. Visit our homepage at roads.maryland.gov.
