Record Observer - - News -

CHESTERTOWN — The Mary­land De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion will pave 2.5 miles of MD 213 (Maple Av­enue/Wash­ing­ton Av­enue) through Chestertown in Kent County be­gin­ning Sun­day night, Aug. 27.

Work will ex­tend from the bridge over Ch­ester River to MD 297 (Wor­ton Road) and in­clude milling/grind­ing, patching, paving and new pave­ment mark­ings. MD 291 (Morgnec Road) will also be resur­faced from MD 213 to the Wash­ing­ton Col­lege en­trance.

Crews are per­mit­ted to work overnight 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sun­day night through Fri­day morn­ing. These hours may be ad­justed in re­sponse to traf­fic con­di­tions. Driv­ers should also al­low a few ex­tra min­utes for travel through Chestertown dur­ing late evening and overnight hours as sin­gle lane clo­sures and flag­ging oc­cur.

Ac­cord­ing to SHA, nearly 15,000 ve­hi­cles travel MD 213 through the down­town area each day.

All work is an­tic­i­pated to be com­pleted by the end of Septem­ber. David A. Bram­ble of Chestertown is the con­trac­tor for this project, val­ued at $900,000.
