- US 301 Resurfacing Project
To improve roadway drainage, the State Highway Administration (SHA) is starting a $3.3 million safety and resurfacing project along on a 2.4-mile section of US 301 (Robert Crain Highway) in Upper Marlboro. The project involves replacing existing inlets and curb and gutter, manhole and storm drain pipe work and slope stabilization to prevent roadway erosion between Old Crain Highway near the CSX railroad crossing to just south of MD 4 (Pennsylvania Avenue). Other improvements include replacement of roadside and median guardrail, resurfacing of all traffic lanes and new pavement markings. More than 33,000 vehicles travel this section of US 301 each day. Crews will perform road patching, slope stabilization and drainage grate repairs and replacements. Crews are permitted to close lanes between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. In spring 2015, crews will also be permitted to work between 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday nights for road resurfacing activities. SHA awarded the contract to Francis O. Day, Co., Inc. of Rockville. The entire project should be complete by late fall 2015, weather permitting.
