US 50 sign

​Nighttime Work Scheduled to Begin Tuesday Night, September 5 

(September 1, 2023) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will resurface three locations along eastbound US 50 in Anne Arundel County starting Tuesday September 5 at 9 p.m. The work should be complete by early October, weather permitting. 

The work includes milling, paving, and restriping a one-mile section of eastbound US 50 between Whitehall Road and Oceanic Drive and the eastbound US 50 ramp from Busch’s Frontage Road up to the Pointless Forest Trail. Crews will also resurface the US 50/Oceanic Drive interchange that provides access to Sandy Point State Park. 

Drivers should expect overnight single and double lane and ramp closures on eastbound US 50 Saturdays through Thursdays 9 p.m.-5 a.m. Crews will implement temporary signed detours while the overnight ramp closures are in place.  

State Highway Administration contractor, Allan Myers MD, Inc. of Fallston, will use arrow boards, cones, and barrels to safely guide motorists through the work zone. Additionally, portable variable message signs will be in place along area state routes to make travelers aware of the closure.   

The State Highway Administration understands roadwork can be an inconvenience but is necessary to maintain a safe and reliable highway system. Drivers are asked to slow down in the work zone for the safety of all drivers and the crews working to improve our roadways. Customers may call the District 5 Office at 410-841-1000 or toll-free at 1-800-331-5603 for additional information. ​
