Delays expected from I-70 roadwork in Howard Co.
The Maryland State Highway Administration has announced that roadwork will likely cause major delays this weekend along eastbound Interstate 70 near the Frederick-Howard county line. The agency said in a statement that it will close two of the three eastbound lanes between Route 27 and Route 94 by Friday night. The two right lanes will remain closed until 5 a.m. Monday. The SHA says crews will replace several large sections of deteriorating pavement. The agency is urging drivers to consider using Route 27 and either Route 144 or Route 26.
