MDOT SHA TO MAKE EMERGENCY REPAIRS EASTBOUND US 340 IN FREDERICK COUNTY
Single Lane Closure Necessary for Crew to Repair Bridge Deck
(January 4, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will close the right lane of eastbound US 340 past the MD 180/Petersville exit to repair a pothole on the bridge over Catoctin Creek starting tomorrow at 9 a.m. Crews expect to complete the emergency repairs by 5 p.m. tomorrow.
MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for our crews as well as our customers. Drivers need to stay alert, focus on driving and, look for reduced speed limits, as well as other driving pattern changes. Drive like you work here and slow down in construction zones.
