Road Work Scheduled for Improvements to Boyd's Turn Road in Owings

Construction to Begin June 20; Motorists May Experience Delays

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – (June 17, 2011)—Road work along Boyd’s Turn Road from Paris Oaks Road to north of the Windy Hill school complex entrance is scheduled to commence on or around June 20 in an effort to improve traffic flow and safety.

Motorists may experience traffic delays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. during construction hours and are encouraged to take alternate routes if possible. The project is anticipated to be completed by the end of June, 2012.

The improvements will include widening and realignment of a two-lane road crossing, including acceleration and deceleration lanes, north of Paris Oaks Road to a point 750 feet north of the Windy Hill school complex, approximately 0.42 miles.

The project also includes the construction of drainage improvements, paving of roadways and the installation of new roadway signs and pavement markings.

The total cost is approximately $4 million, which was allocated in the county’s Fiscal Year 2011 capital budget and includes the costs of engineering, rights-of-way acquisition, the relocation of utilities and construction and inspection services.
