ELKTON—

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.
