Portion of Route 213 to close Sat.
Elkton stretch reopens Monday morning
A road closure will begin Nov. 5 for construction to replace a pipe under Route 213 near Rene Carr Street and Manor Road.
The State Highway Administration will close Route 213 at Manor Road on Saturday at 6 a.m, and it will remain closed until 6 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 7, said Bob Rager, district community liaison for the Maryland State Highway Administration.
The construction crew will work through the weekend to replace the metal pipe, which carries water from the Big Elk Creek under Route 213, according to SHA officials. Before the pipe work begins, a temporary stream diversion will be created.
David A. Bramble, of Chestertown, was awarded the bid by the State Highway Administration.
Local traffic will have maintained
access, according to SHA officials.
The detour, roughly about a mile, will take people from Whitehall Road to Route 40, Rager said.
“If you’re traveling through the area give yourself extra time,” he added. “Drive the speed limit and respect the neighborhood.”
He said travelers should give themselves 10 to 15 minutes extra time to travel due to the impact of the detour.
