​3.7-Mile Project Will Improve Safety and Ride Quality 

(October 13, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is beginning a $3.7 million safety and resurfacing project on MD 108 next week from Olney Mill Road to Brooke Road in Olney. Weather permitting, the 3.7-mile project is expected to be complete by late summer 2023.

In addition to pavement milling and resurfacing, the project will:

  • patch the road surface;
  • repair, replace or clean inlets;
  • clean storm drain pipes;
  • repair concrete curb and gutter and medians;
  • reconstruct driveways to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards;
  • upgrade pedestrian ramps and bus stops;
  • upgrade traffic barriers; and
  • install new pavement markings.

Through the end of this year, crews will complete the ADA concrete and guardrail work along MD 108. Once warmer weather returns next spring, crews will complete all remaining work, including resurfacing and pavement markings.

During work periods, crews will close a single lane of MD 108, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and also overnight, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings. Additional workdays and times may be needed to expedite the work and keep the project on schedule. MDOT SHA contractor Allan Myers, of Fallston, will perform the work. More information on this project can be found here​.

The Move Over Law in Maryland requires motorists to make a lane change or slow down when approaching any stopped, standing or parked vehicle displaying hazard warning lights, road flares or other caution signals. The expanded law is in place to protect emergency responders and motorists who encounter a roadside emergency.

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