Resurfacing Project for 3.7-Miles of MD 108 in Olney Area Will Improve Road, But Will Create Traffic Disruptions Through Summer 2023

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is beginning a $3.7 million safety and resurfacing project on MD 108 from Olney Mill Road to Brooke Road in Olney. Weather permitting, the 3.7-mile project is expected to be complete by late summer 2023.

In addition to pavement milling and resurfacing, the project will:
  • Patch the road surface
  • Repair, replace or clean inlets
  • Clean storm drain pipes
  • Repair concrete curb and gutter and medians
  • Reconstruct driveways to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards
  • Upgrade pedestrian ramps and bus stops
  • Upgrade traffic barriers
  • Install new pavement markings
Through the end of December, crews will complete the ADA concrete and guardrail work along MD 108. Once warmer weather returns next spring, crews will complete all remaining work, including resurfacing and pavement markings.

During work periods, crews will close a single lane of MD 108 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and overnight, 8 p.m.-5 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings. Additional workdays and times may be needed to expedite the work and keep the project on schedule.

MDOT SHA contractor Allan Myers, of Fallston will perform the work. More information on this project can be found here.
