MDOT SHA RESURFACES LANDOVER ROAD IN PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY
MD 202 from US 50 to Annapolis Road to Get a “Facelift”
(May 12, 2017) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is providing a new driving surface as part of a $2.8 million safety and resurfacing project on MD 202 (Landover Road) between US 50 (John Hanson Highway) and MD 450 (Annapolis Road) in Prince George’s County. The work also includes resurfacing of the ramps to and from MD 202 to US 50. Weather and progress permitting, the 1.6-mile project should be complete by fall.
In addition to resurfacing, which will be performed at the end of the project, SHA is:
• Replacing damaged brick medians;
• Constructing new sidewalks and ramps;
• Repairing or replacing damaged concrete curb and gutter;
• Cleaning and repairing drainage inlets and pipes;
• Installing new guardrail; and
• Replacing all pavement markings once all final resurfacing is complete.
SHA’s contractor, for the project is F.O. Day, Co. of Rockville. Crews may close a single lane Mondays through Fridays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., and two lanes Sundays through Thursdays between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Additional work or lane closure times may be needed throughout the lifetime of the project to expedite work and keep the project on schedule.
Crews will use cones, barrels and arrow boards to guides drivers through the work zone. More than 45,000 vehicles use this section of MD 202 daily so motorists are encouraged to plan extra travel time.
