FREDERICK, Md (WDVM) — Reconstruction on MD-180 is expected to begin this summer to improve traffic and to better accommodate those walking or biking along the roadway.
According to the Maryland Department of Transportation, a new bridge will be constructed over US-15 to allow for more travel lanes onto MD-190 on Jefferson Pike.
Officials add that increased business and residential development has created heightened traffic within the corridor.
Pavements on the roadway will be widened to better accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians will also see construction on sidewalks to become more ADA compliant.
Utility reconstruction is currently underway and construction is expected to begin later this summer.
Officials anticipate a late 2020 completion.
