New Roadway Constructed as Part of I-70 Expansion in Frederick


Frederick, MD -- Great news for people visiting the historic City of Frederick! The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is opening the entire length of Monocacy Boulevard between MD 355 (Market Street) and South Street by Wednesday, June 13, weather permitting.

“The completed section of Monocacy Boulevard will help ease traffic on roads leading into The City of Frederick as the area continues to grow, “said David Coyne, SHA District Engineer. “We thank motorists for their patience and ask people to continue to stay alert for construction activity this spring and summer”

Construction of this section of Monocacy Boulevard is part of the $44 million I-70/South Street reconstruction and expansion project. Remaining work on the project includes continuing to replace and widen the I-70 bridges over I-70, replacement of traffic signals and signs, resurfacing and guardrail installation. The project is scheduled for completion summer 2013, weather permitting. Anyone with questions about the I-70/South Street interchange may call SHA’s District 7 Office at 301-624-8100 or toll free at 1-800-635-5119.

Maryland now features FREE 511 traveler information! Call 511 or 1-855-GOMD511 or visit: www.md511.org for current travel information.

While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don’t follow too closely. Safer driving. Safer work zones. For everyone!
