Resur­fac­ing tak­ing place on parts of Route 213 and Route 302

Record Observer - - News -

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.
