MD 30 signDaytime Project Spans More Than Five Miles of Roadway (November 9, 2022) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will improve the driving surface on MD 30 (Hanover Pike/Hampstead Bypass) between Basler Road and the Baltimore County line, located a half mile south of the MD 30 and Phillips Road roundabout starting next week. Starting at 9 a.m. on Monday, November 14, crews will close one travel lane and start a flagging operation on MD 30. The project will repair potholes, depressions and cracks on five and a half miles of roadway in Hampstead, Carroll County. The work will include the MD 482 (Hampstead Mexico Road) roundabout. The schedule is Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The project is expected to be complete by the end of the year.The contractor, C.J. Miller, LLC based in Hampstead, will use signs, cones and barrels to alert motorists about the lane closure and guide them through the work zone. 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.
