With nearly 10,000 vehicles a day traveling MD 328 (Matthewstown Road) and increased traffic on Black Dog Alley near Easton, the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) will signalize this busy Talbot County intersection next week.
The new signals will enhance safety by facilitating turns and crossing movements for Black Dog Alley drivers, particularly during peak-commute periods. MDOT SHA will place temporary message boards along MD 328 to alert drivers of the new signal. Work includes converting the existing flashing beacons to full-color traffic signals with video detection for improved traffic management, as well as signage and line striping. Rommel Engineering and Construction of Linthicum is expected to complete the project in two days for an estimated $30,000.
MDOT SHA works hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones for motorists, as well as our crews. 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 slowdown in construction zones.
