PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (May 10, 2011) Road work on the intersection of MD Route 231 (Hallowing Point Road) and J.W. Williams Road at the College of Southern Maryland is scheduled to commence on or around May 11 in an effort to improve traffic flow.
Motorists may experience traffic delays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. during construction hours, say county officials. The project is anticipated to be completed by November.
The improvements will include base widening on MD 231 by adding an eastbound left-turn lane at the intersection, widening to extend the dedicated right-turn lane on southbound J.W. Williams Road, resurfacing of MD 231 and J.W. Williams Road, adding centerline rumble strips on MD 231, permanent signing and pavement marking. The project also includes the construction of ditches and installation of pipes and drainage structures.
The total cost is approximately $2.3 million, which was allocated in the county Fiscal Year 2011 capital budget and covers engineering, rights-of-way acquisition, the relocation of utilities, construction and inspection.
