Month-long resurfacing of Route 405 started
CHURCH HILL — Motorists who use State Route 405 south of Church Hill can expect changes in traffic patterns for the next several weeks while the road is resurfaced, the State Highway Administration said.
Work began this week on 2.1 miles of the road, which is also known as Price Station Road, and is expected to take about a month, weather permitting, SHA said.
The work involves grinding the top layer of asphalt off, paving, and re-striping. Motorists should expect singlelane closures and flaggers directing traffic Monday through Fridays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to SHA.
About 2,000 vehicles travel this stretch of Route 405 each day, SHA said. The work is part of a multiple location contract awarded to David A. Bramble of Chestertown. The estimated cost of the Route 405 resurfacing is $514,000, SHA said.
“Resurfacing projects such as thus provide a smoother ride, increase roadway service life, and enhance safety by improving friction, drainage, and visibility of pavement markings,” SHA said in a statement.
