PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (March 31, 2009) The Calvert County Department of Public Works, in an effort to improve safety and operational efficiency, is preparing for the reconstruction of the roundabout at the intersection of Chapline Place Boulevard and Prince Frederick Boulevard in Prince Frederick.
The roundabout will be converted from two lanes to a single lane and include a channelized right-turn lane for westbound Chapline Place Boulevard traffic turning northbound onto Prince Frederick Boulevard. Traffic through the roundabout will be maintained during construction.
Construction is anticipated to begin by early June 2009 and last approximately 60 working days. Work will be performed Sunday through Friday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. While crews are working, one northbound left-turn lane from MD Route 4 onto Chapline Place Boulevard will be closed. During non-work hours, both left turn lanes will be open and will merge into a single lane on Chapline Place Boulevard. Motorists travelling to Prince Frederick Boulevard from northbound Route 4 may also use West Dares Beach Road, Traskers Boulevard and Stoakley Road for access to the Chapline and Market Square shopping centers as alternatives to Chapline Place Boulevard.
The reconstruction project is expected to cost less than $500,000, and the County will be reimbursed for 80 percent of the cost through the Maryland State Aid to Local Jurisdictions program.
