ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to replace two deteriorating culverts under a portion of Shaffers Mill Road, approximately 650 feet west of Shaffersville Road in Mount Airy, is expected to begin on or about Monday, June 14th. The existing metal culverts will be removed and replaced with concrete culverts. Concrete headwalls will also be installed at each side of the roadway. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by mid-July.
During the project, Shaffers Mill Road at the construction site will be closed to thru traffic. Motorists will follow a clearly marked detour using Shaffersville Road and Florence Road. Signs will be in place to advise motorists of the road closure and detour. Additionally, a recorded message at 410-313-3637 will carry project details and updates.
