Work on eastbound U.S. 50 may snarl beach traffic
For those coming from the north, this shouldn't be a problem. And to the south of Baltimore, it's just something to be aware of. The State Highway Administration is expecting major delays this weekend as contractors finish up repairs along 9 miles of eastbound U.S. 50 in Prince George's County. The work involves pouring and curing concrete and is being done this weekend during daylight hours. Because of the time involved to set the concrete, SHA says the work cannot be done overnight.
Here's how it could affect some folks to our south: Drivers headed to the beach from the affected areas are being encouraged to take alternate routes including I-95/495 to MD 32 to I-97 or MD 450, which runs parallel to US 50 in PG county. The work begins at 9 p.m. Friday and should be completed by 5 a.m. Monday.
