Motorists Urged to Use Caution During Flagging Operations
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will mill and resurface one mile of MD 825B (Oakland Drive) just east of US 219 in Mountain Lake Park beginning Monday night, April 16. Work includes milling, patching, resurfacing and restriping Oakland Drive between MD 135 (Maryland Highway) and Deer Park Avenue.
Work will take place Sunday through Thursday nights from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. During these hours, flagging operations may occur and reduce travel to one lane. Weather permitting, work is expected to be complete mid-May.
On average, more than 1,250 vehicles travel this stretch of Oakland Drive each day. As crews strive to keep work zones safe, SHA asks each driver to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert – look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely.
