Resurfacing taking place on parts of Route 213 and Route 302
CENTREVILLE — The State Highway Administration has announced that improvements are being made to Route 213 near Centreville and Route 302 near Barclay.
The work is part of a $3.8 million resurfacing project on five roads in Kent and Cecil counties as well as the Queen Anne’s projects.
Pavement patching to prepare the roads has already taken place on the two Queen Anne’s projects and the work of removing the top layer of asphalt on Route 213 (Church Hill Road), was to begin on about Aug. 22, SHA said. The portion of Route 213 between the Centreville town limits and north of Wexford Drive — a total of 2.5 miles — is being resurfaced once the removal of the old asphalt is completed, according to the agency.
The average traffic volume on that roadway is about 7,000 vehicles a day, SHA said. Weather permitting, the work should be completed this fall.
A similar project is planned on a three-mile stretch of Route 302 (Barclay Road) between Route 301 and the Barclay town limits, according to SHA. The removal of the top layer of asphalt, also known as grinding, is due to begin the week of August 29, weather permitting. Paving will follow, with the work anticipated to be completed sometime this fall.
Route 302 in that area carries about 3,000 vehicles a day, SHA said.
In both Queen Anne’s projects, motorists can expect daytime single lane closures, the agency said. It urges motorists to be alert when traveling in the work areas.
