Highway officials in Maryland have warned motorists to be vigilant as they travel in work zones. With the large amount of construction and maintenance crews on the roadways, drivers should be on the lookout for orange cones and barrels. While these signs serve to protect employees, their purpose is also to keep drivers and passengers safe.
The report noted that the state will invest $60 million in a construction project on US 301 and MD 304. The project will involve several hundred contractors and state employees who will be doing seasonal repairs as well as extensive construction in the work zones. The various jobs will include basic road and bridge repairs, widening roadways and interchange construction.
