Resurfacing project underway on US 50/301 west
KENT ISLAND — The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (SHA) began resurfacing 4.2 miles of westbound US 50/301 (Blue Star Memorial Highway) between Queenstown and the Kent Narrows Bridge on Monday, April 17. Work includes milling/grinding, patching, paving and restriping. Weather permitting, all work will be completed by mid-summer.
According to SHA, this will be overnight work from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. weekdays. Crews may close two of the three westbound travel lanes. Occasional minor delays should be expected and motorists should allow extra time for travel during work hours. SHA may adjust work hours and lane closures as needed in response to traffic conditions.
On average more than 76,000 vehicles travel this part of US 50/301 each day. SHA awarded the $3.2 million project to David A. Bramble of Chestertown.
