WYE MILLS — To ex­pe­dite re­place­ment of a de­te­ri­o­rated stream cross­ing, the Mary­land Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion’s State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion (SHA) is clos­ing MD 404 (Queen Anne High­way) at Al­ways Inn Lane in Wye Mills for ap­prox­i­mately two weeks be­gin­ning Nov. 15. SHA will de­tour traf­fic us­ing US 50 (Ocean Gate­way), MD 662 (Old Wye Mills Road) and MD 213 (Col­lege Drive). Mo­torists should fol­low de­tour signs. Crews will main­tain lo­cal ac­cess con­struc­tion. This work will not im­pact MD 404 traf­fic east of US 50, where a project to widen 9.2 miles has been un­der­way since sum­mer.

SHA’s con­trac­tor will re­place two de­te­ri­o­rat­ing metal pipes car­ry­ing a branch of Wye River with a sin­gle re­in­forced con­crete pipe ap­prox­i­mately 40-feet long. To en­sure safety while plac­ing a pre­cast head­wall, the con­trac­tor may have to de-en­er­gize power lines in the area for a few hours. The lo­cal power util­ity will pro­vide ad­vance no­tice of any planned out­age.

SHA awarded the $250,000 con­tract to David A. Bram­ble of Ch­ester­town.
