Record Observer - - News -

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.
