Compactors and pavers will be a regular sight for commuters on Route 113 between Snow Hill and Berlin as construction crews begin laying base asphalt on portions of the highway.
Maryland State Highway Administration spokesperson Bob Rager provided a status update on Phase 3 of the $86 million highway dualization project, which covers a 4.6-mile stretch of road between Massey Branch at the north end and Five Mile Branch Road.
“We just started paving last week,” he said. “The order of business for the rest of the summer is going to be paving, paving, paving.”
The initial base asphalt paving was done last week between Massey Creek and Langmaid Road, Rager said.
