Work on Wilson Road in Huntingtown to Improve Intersection Safety

Construction Set to Begin Feb. 22; Motorists May Experience Delays

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (February 17, 2011) — Road work at Allday Road and Wilson Road in Huntingtown is scheduled to commence Feb. 22 in an effort to increase motorist safety by improving sightlines at the intersection.

Work will stretch for approximately 1,000 feet along Wilson Road from Allday Road north toward Emmanuel Church Road. Motorists may experience traffic delays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. during construction hours and are encouraged to take alternative routes if possible. The project is anticipated to be completed by Nov. 2011.

The improvements will address a sight distance problem along the roadway. Crews will perform extensive earth work related to cutting and lowering the road profiles. The project includes drainage improvements, new paving, striping and signs. The total cost of approximately $1 million was allocated in the county fiscal 2011 budget and covers engineering, rights-of-way acquisition, the relocation of utilities, construction and inspection.
