Major Resurfacing Projects on MD 213 Begins July 10 

(June 29, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will begin a project next week to resurface MD 213 (Augustine Herman Highway) in Cecil County. Starting Sunday, July 10, and continuing through the end of the month, crews will work Sunday evenings through Friday mornings, 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., to mill, patch, pave and stripe 2.5 miles of MD 213 from the Sassafras River to Sandy Bottom Lane in Cecilton. 

Upon completion of the first section, crews will work Sunday evenings through Fridays, 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., to resurface 3.5 miles of MD 213 from north of Cecilton to the Bohemia River. Work is expected to be completed by the end of August, weather permitting.

Motorists should expect single-lane closures and flagging operations during all milling and paving work. MDOT SHA contractor Allan Myers Inc., of Fallston, will perform the work.

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. Please drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones. Motorists can dial #77 on their mobile devices for roadside assistance. ​

Motorists in need may dial #77 on their mobile device for roadside assistance. ​
