"The posted signs for a road construction project on MD Route 4 in Calvert County promise a completion by the summer of '19 but it appears that the work is behind schedule. What is the anticipated completion date for this project?"
Whether you refer to it as Route 4, Route 2 or Solomons Island Road, you can expect Calvert County's busiest highway to be wider through Prince Frederick soon. But, as Bob points out, there were some minor setbacks during the early phases of the project.
The widening project will convert Route 4 to a six-lane divided highway between Fox Run Boulevard and Commerce Lane. The early utility relocation was a little more time-consuming than expected, but the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration said it expects the work will be completed by next spring.
Saw-cutting for curb placement and grading continues on the median. Storm drain relocation and replacement continues on the median as well.
MDOT will be performing some overnight work this summer with lane closures from time to time. Occasional lane closures should be expected for related roadwork on Dares Beach Road near Route 4.
Long range plans for northern and southern interchanges at tie-ins with Prince Frederick Boulevard are on hold.
