​Overnight Work Includes US 50 (John Hanson Highway) Interchange Ramps

(November 18, 2021) - The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is resurfacing a section of MD 2 (Solomons Island Road) in Anne Arundel County. Crews began working Wednesday, November 17, on the roadway between Jennifer Road and MD 450 (West Street). The project is expected to complete by the end of the year.

Crews will work Sundays through Thursdays, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Due to holiday work restrictions, the overnight work will not take place between Tuesday, November 23, and Monday, November 29.

Along with the MD 2 travel lanes, crews will resurface four ramps at the US 50 / MD 2 interchange just south of Jennifer Road:

  • Northbound MD 2 to eastbound US 50.
  • Northbound MD 2 to westbound US 50.
  • Southbound MD 2 to eastbound US 50.
  • Southbound MD 2 to westbound US 50.

During work hours, motorists can expect single-lane closures. Drivers will be directed to use overnight traffic detours for each overnight single ramp closure. Portable variable message and temporary traffic signs will be available to direct traffic along designated detours for each overnight ramp closure. The first overnight ramp closure is along northbound MD 2 to eastbound US 50.
